The Perth District Health Unit and the Huron County Health Unit will be merging into a single entity effective January 1, 2020, called Huron Perth Public Health (HPPH). The goal of the merger is to improve the delivery of public health programs and services across Huron and Perth counties.
This October the federal government will legalize and introduce new regulations for cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals. These products will be subject to the same laws as all other cannabis products. The Health Unit reminds residents who choose to use edibles, extracts or topicals to do so safely.
