Past Events

NOSM Orange Shirt Day

September 30, 2019

Orange Shirt Day, held annually on September 30, is an opportunity for people, organizations and communities to come together and learn about the legacy and intergenerational effects of the residential school system here in Canada. A small group of champions at NOSM have been working to bring more acknowledgment to this date and to set the stage for inclusion and anti-bullying near the start of the academic year. We will be selling unique NOSM Orange Shirts online throughout August and September at $20.00 a shirt, with the funds generated from the sales of the shirts to be place into an Indigenous Student Bursary at NOSM.

Celebrating Success with NOSM

NOSM has much to celebrate thanks to partnerships developed across the whole of Northern Ontario, with communities engaged actively in educating learners and shaping the future of health care in their region.

Join NOSM for a reception to celebrate the progress we’ve made together and recognize the contributions of Dr. Roger Strasser, Founding Dean and CEO.
