VSHJ member Dr. Murray Enkin, a Professor Emeritus at McMaster University’s School of Medicine, was at Rideau Hall in Ottawa on May 3rd, where he was made a Member of the Order of Canada for “his contributions to maternal care and the development of midwifery as a recognized profession in Canada.”
The Order of Canada, one of the country’s highest civilian honours, was established in 1967, during Canada’s centennial year, to recognize a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to community and service to the nation.
