WSIB Day of Mourning - April 28th

WSIB Day of Morning April 28

WSIB DAY OF MOURNING - In 1984, the Canadian Labour Congress established April 28th as the National Day of Mourning in Canada to remember and honour those who have died, been injured or suffered illness in the workplace. The Day of Mourning, also known as Workers’ Memorial Day, is officially recognized in about 100 countries worldwide.
Canadian flags on Parliament Hill and at Queen’s Park fly at half-mast on April 28th. The day is traditionally marked in many ways including holding public ceremonies, wearing black and yellow ribbons, lighting candles, observing a moment of silence at 11:00 a.m. and sharing stories about how workplace tragedies have touched peoples’ lives.

Let's all do our part to keep workers coming home safe to their family, friends and communities. We're committed to doing our part. Work safe all!

If you're looking to donate or get involved, consider Threads of Life, an organization working to prevent further workplace tragedies.
