Order of Canada

Augusta Barter, C.M.

Bay de Verde, Newfoundland and Labrador [Canada]

Member of the Order of Canada

Awarded on October 23, 1989; Invested on April 18, 1990

Well-respected by her fellow citizens of Bay de Verde, this dedicated outpost nurse has spent the greater part of her life attending to the medical needs of her community. In a time of limited resources, when there were few doctors, inadequate medical equipment and primitive methods of transportation, she selflessly gave of herself to care for the welfare of countless Newfoundlanders.
