Presidential Installation

The installation of Dr. Rahim Karim as CCNM's 10th President and CEO took place on September 23, 2022 in the Lecture Theatre (Toronto Campus).

The event - attended by members of various academic institutions, government, professional associations, community organizations, CCNM employees and students both in-person and virtually - was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the history of our institution, acknowledge all that we have accomplished but also welcome the tremendous experience and leadership that Dr. Karim brings with him as he paves the way for a new chapter at CCNM.
As part of his installation address, new President and CEO Dr. Rahim Karim outlined a strategic direction building upon partnerships, programming, practice, participation and planning.
“I want to express my appreciation to all that have been affiliated with the institution’s history and those that continue to support or serve. As we move forward, I am truly excited about our future and the work we will do together. I invite participation from all – our partners, employees and students. Together, working collaboratively, we will continue to grow this fine institution, build our global reputation and reach, and strengthen naturopathic medicine.” said Dr. Karim.
