CANS president, Duncan Williams, received a letter from Deputy Minister, Duff Montgomerie, expressing his appreciation for CANS’s input during the governance and operational review of the Occupational Health and Safety Advisory Council.
The review conducted by Royer Thompson has helped the department identify ways to focus the Council in providing the best strategic advice to the Minister. The future Council and its direction could not have been developed without your participation and thoughtful feedback. The website, http://novascotia.ca/lae/pubs/docs/OHSAC-Report.pdf, provides the full report and recommendations. The Minister has accepted this in full and is taking steps through a Transition Committee to best establish a new Council.
