Administrative history

The Halifax Drug Dispensing Committee was a special committee established by the Public Health and Welfare Committee at a meeting held in August 1966. Representatives from the City of Dartmouth and the County of Halifax also attended the special meeting to discuss ways to continue the services of the Halifax Visiting Dispensary, a group that provided subsidized medical services and drugs to the area’s needy. The Drug Dispensing Committee was formed to examine the supplying of drugs to the needy in the metropolitan area and how the dispensary’s service might be continued. The committee consisted of representatives from each of the local municipalities involved. Sources
