Event Details

Donna passed away in late June 2021 after a brief battle with cancer. The loss was sudden and devastating to her family and anyone that knew her.
Besides being a devoted wife and mother, she was a registered nurse and educator. Donna worked as a registered nurse for more than 34 years in both the hospital and in community settings. In 2011 Donna began her work as a nursing instructor at Conestoga College; teaching in the International Nursing program.

The program is designed to prepare internationally educated nurses to practice their profession in Canada. These new to Canada nurses will help address current and future nursing shortages throughout Canada and become part of our communities and eventually homeowners. While these nurses are receiving their Canadian education at Conestoga College some have travelled to Atlantic Canada and western Canada to start their new lives as Canadian nurses. 

Many messages from former students were received sharing their appreciation and admiration for Donna. Many of them crediting her for helping them both personally and professionally to become a nurse and having a successful integration to Canada. 

Donna always said she had the best job – the combination of nursing and teaching.

With a desire to create a legacy for Donna, the family created the Donna Squire International Nursing Student Bursary. The bursary will recognize three students, one per semester, entering into the 2nd year of the program, based on a combination of academic, educational performance, quality of care and self-reflective practice. What is special about this award is that Donna was able to see it become a reality and had input into the criteria for the successful recipients. A international nursing student pays over $28,000 per year in tuition and this bursary can help ease some of that financial burden.
The goal is to reach over $100,000 so that the legacy can run in perpetuity and truly honour Donna and her accomplishments. With the objective to support the nursing profession, a charity golf tournament on August 27, 2022 has been organized to raise funds for the Donna Squire International Nursing Student Bursary.

The family would be honoured if you would consider becoming a partner, sponsoring or participating in the golf tournament . If you have any questions, please contact Pin Luk,  or Cynthia Clark, 
Thank you for your continued support
