April 28, Day of Mourning, Reflection

Every day in Canada an average of 3 workers will die from a workplace injury or an occupational disease.

Canada has designated April 28th the Day of Mourning. People from across all sectors of our communities – workers, families, unions and employers – will gather to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease. On April 28th, let us join together in a moment to honour the lives impacted and reflect on how we can ensure everyone arrives home healthy and safe.

Let’s use every day to renew our commitment to Boilermaker health, safety and wellbeing.

There will be Day of Mourning ceremonies right across the country. To find an event near you, click here.
