Order of Moncton - Owen Fraser
The late Owen Fraser was a consummate teacher and beloved mentor who gave selflessly to all aspects of school life. He dedicated his life to challenging the youth of Moncton to have confidence, to reach for goals thought to be unattainable and to become leaders in society while appreciating and preserving our natural world. He has influenced generations of Monctonians who have helped transform the city into what it is today.
He piloted the Outdoor Pursuits Program and Computer Education which later became the model for the provincial program. He founded Camp Centennial which flourishes to this day. He was the choir director at his church and worked tirelessly for years in the Boy Scout movement. He co-founded the Cape Enrage project which has become one of New Brunswick’s major tourist attractions.
Never shying away from what was deemed too difficult, he made things happen. He was a true visionary working for the greater good of his community. An unforgettable role model, Owen Fraser was an ideal example of an exemplary citizen.
