Statement from the Mayor - Congratulations to NOSM University

Apr 1, 2022

On behalf of City Council and all residents in Greater Sudbury, I would like to extend congratulations to NOSM University on officially becoming Canada’s first independent medical university. Since 2005, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine has played an instrumental role in improving health equity in our region and has made significant contributions in our community through their distinctive and engaged model of medical education.

NOSM University has always been a school created by Northerners, for Northerners and its values will always mirror who we are, where we live, and the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The City of Greater Sudbury is proud to support NOSM University, and we look forward the continued success of the institution, its graduates and faculty for many years to come.
