Provincial Resources

Under the Constitution Act, health and health care obligations are shared by the federal and provincial governments. So in addition to the federal health resources we've highlighted in our "Canada" tab, here are links to each province's Health departments, as well as some other provincial resources where available.

International Organizations

Intergovernmental Organizations

Intergovernmental organizations, or international organizations, aren't technically "government," but are usually composed of sovereign states, though they may also include representation from non-profit organizations or corporations.

The World Health Organization, the United Nations' public health agency, is a major provider of international health information. We've included links to many of its most vital resources, as well as its major publications.

We've also included links to important resources provided by other UN agencies, the OECD, and more.

Finding Government Documents

Finding Government Documents

UNB Libraries has a large collection of print materials, located on the third floor of the Harriet Irving Library. Our collection includes documents from the Canadian federal government, every province and territory, foreign countries, and international intergovernmental organizations. Our collection is identified by the "HIL-GOV" location, and can be found via WorldCat:

Because our collection's items are grouped together by their publishing governments or organizations - rather than by subject - our call numbering system is different from the system used elsewhere in the library. To learn more about our call numbering system, please check out our guide to finding government documents.

We're always happy to help, either in person during our staffing hours (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) or by email.

    Citing Government Documents
