Message

Workers, families, and employers gather to honour the 131 workers in British Columbia who lost their lives in 2018 due to workplace injury and disease. Join us as we renew our commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces for everyone.

Background

The national Day of Mourning is observed in Canada on April 28. The day honours the memory of workers who have been killed, injured, or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents. Typically, the Canadian flag on Parliament Hill is flown at half-mast, and workers and employees observe the day in various ways including wearing ribbons, lighting candles, and observing moments of silence. There are approximately 45 permanent worker memorial sites sponsored by WorkSafeBC in British Columbia.

Target Group
