Dr. Walter Borden, CM, ONS

Born in New Glasgow, NS, the son of Hector and Ethel (Paris) Borden, Walter graduated from New Glasgow High School in 1960. He set out to further his education by attending the Nova Scotia Teachers' College and later Acadia University. He began his life's journey as a teacher in the Halifax Municipality school system, but eventually that path led him to a lifetime of acting.

His stage appearances have spanned the country, from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, and internationally. Walter is credited for 44 different Selected Theatre Productions, with twelve different productions at Stratford Festival, including King Henry VIII, Macbeth, and Harlem Duet, and just as many at Neptune Theatre where he performed in Driving Miss Daisy, Gospel at Colonus and Tartuffe. He is also credited for 17 Selected Film & Television Appearances, either as Lead Star, Guest Star, Featured Star and Series Regular. He has received six awards pertaining to acting and ten other awards including the Order of Canada 2006, Order of Nova Scotia 2014, and Honourary Doctorates from Acadia University and Saint Mary's University.
