Nermin Karim is the Restorative Response Program Manager at the North Shore Restorative Justice Society. She is a lawyer and a mother of four young adults. Her first career was Optometry which lead her to international development work and ultimately to a law degree with the hopes of effecting systemic change. She brings the experience she has gained in Poverty Law from her work in the Downtown Eastside and her experience in Family Law, especially with women leaving abusive relationships. Nermin is trained as a Restorative Justice Practitioner giving her strengths in the areas of collaboration and conflict resolution. She feels blessed to have grown up in the multicultural, immigrant-rich neighbourhood of Flemingdon Park in Toronto and has been enjoying the natural beauty of her North Shore home for 30 years. When she’s not working, she is likely with family, marvelling at our ocean and walking the seawall.
