Product description

Stories of real people who have died from work-related injuries and illnesses.

Aims and objectives

On April 28th, join us in remembering people who died, were injured, or suffered illness because of work. So what happened to them never happens again.

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. Each year we recognize the day by remembering those who have suffered a work-related injury or illness, and encouraging people to rededicate themselves to workplace safety.
