NOSM Celebrates National Aboriginal Day

National Aboriginal Day 2017

Today, as individuals across Canada celebrate the summer solstice and National Aboriginal Day, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) releases a report titled NOSM’s Response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action. The report—a culmination of extensive consultation across the School undertaken in 2016—demonstrates the ongoing work of the portfolios and units within NOSM since 2003. Dialogue with Indigenous Peoples is a key component of what makes the Northern Ontario School of Medicine unique. Even before NOSM’s Charter MD Class was welcomed in 2005, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine was committed to improving the health of the peoples and communities of Northern Ontario. At the earliest stages of development, NOSM engaged the Indigenous communities of Northern Ontario as part of its mandate to be accountable to the social, cultural, linguistic, and geographic diversity of the region.
