Activities: HHE Requests

The number of HHE requests in recent years is about 200 per year. Figure 1 shows the number of requests from 2007 through 2011 by sector. The largest number of requests was received from the services sector (which included Public Safety in 2007 and 2008), followed by healthcare and social assistance. Mining and Agriculture sectors are not shown because fewer than 10 requests came from each of these sectors over the 5-year period.

Figure 1. HHE requests by sector: 2008 – 2012
