In 2013, the federal government transferred responsibility
for the delivery of health services for B.C. First Nations from Health
Canada to the new First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). The Ministry of
Health asked CDSBC to regulate the dental therapists employed at the time in B.C. by Health Canada, and who work only in First
Nations communities. The CDSBC Board approved the parameters under which dental therapists were brought under the auspices of CDSBC.
