Dr. Sherry Boodram (CNW Group/Nextleaf Solutions Ltd.)

Currently, Dr. Boodram is the co-founder and CEO of CannDelta Inc. (“CannDelta”) – a regulatory and scientific cannabis consulting company based out of Toronto, Canada – where she provides regulatory expertise and develops strategies to ensure regulatory compliance within Canada’s existing legal cannabis framework.


“The serious regulatory infractions by several large Canadian licensed cannabis producers, along with an expanded scope of cannabis products through legalization 2.0, reinforces the critical role that compliance oversight plays in building a cannabis company all stakeholders can be proud of,” stated Paul Pedersen, co-founder and CEO of Nextleaf Solutions. “Sherry is amongst the most credible and qualified cannabis regulatory experts in Canada, and we believe her background, insights, and industry experience will add tremendous value to our Board.”

Prior to founding CannDelta, Dr. Sherry Boodram spent several years in the Canadian federal government, most notably with Health Canada’s Medical Cannabis Program as a Senior Regulatory Compliance and Enforcement Officer. She was responsible for licensing application reviews and on-site facility inspections under the legislative regimes of the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) and Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations(ACMPR). Dr. Boodram also provided field level input during the drafting of the current Cannabis Regulations.

“Being a company with values I can stand behind, I’m very excited to serve alongside Nextleaf’s existing Board members and with their talented executive team,” stated Dr. Sherry Boodram. “Moreover, I look forward to maximizing the unique knowledge and experience I gained while at Health Canada’s Medical Cannabis Program, and in the cannabis industry as a whole, to provide expertise in support of Nextleaf’s ongoing commitment to regulatory compliance, good governance, and long-term growth as a leader in cannabis extraction technology.”

Dr. Boodram holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry from York University, a B.Sc. (Hon) from the University of Toronto, and a Graduate Certificate with Honours in Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs and Quality Operations from Seneca College. Dr. Boodram is also a member of the Canadian Association of Professionals in Regulatory Affairs (CAPRA).
