Day of Mourning April 28, 2019
April 28th is the National Day of Mourning to honour those workers in Canada who have been killed, injured or disabled on the job, or who suffer from occupational diseases.
It is the aim of OSSTF/FEESO that the annual observance of this day will help strengthen the resolve to establish safe and healthy conditions in the workplace and prevent further injuries and deaths. As much as this is a day to remember those who have passed, it is also a day to renew the commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace and prevent further injuries, illnesses and deaths.
On April 28, attend a Day of Mourning event in your community; ensure that flags are lowered to half-mast; and above all, take a moment at 11:00 a.m. to remember those who have been injured on the job and those who have lost their lives.
