Biographie / Histoire administrative

When the Department of Health was created in 1919 it acquired responsibility for the control of communicable disease within Canada. The Epidemiology Division was concerned with studying factors governing disease causation in population groups including causal genetic, social, and environmental factors. In addition to its other duties, the division also provided consultation on epidemiological problems to the Health Services Branch, other departments, and to outside agencies. The first Epidemiology Division was established in 1937 by Pensions and National Health but ceased to function in 1939. Following the recommendations of the National Epidemiological Survey in Canada in 1947, the Division was re-established by changing the name of the Tuberculosis Control Division, and in January 1951, the Venereal Disease Control Division was added. From 1953 to 1966, Epidemiology was part of the Research Development section of the Health Services Directorate; in February, 1966, the Health Services Directorate was further re-organized and consolidated into the Health Services Branch and the Health Insurance and Resources Branch. In 1972, a major departmental reorganization resulted in the creation of the Health Protection Branch where epidemiology is currently the Bureau of Communicable Disease Epidemiology in the Laboratory Centre for Disease Control (LCDC). The major objectives of this Bureau include consultation, outbreak investigation, and dissemination of information.
