Day of Mourning

Day of Mourning – April 28th

The “Day of Mourning” is a day intended to recognize those who lost their lives as a result of a work-related incident or occupational diseases.

Day of Mourning ceremonies have been held across the country ever since the Canadian Labour Congress initiated a national Day of Mourning ceremony on April 28, 1984 and is now recognized annually around the world in more than 100 countries.

April 28th was chosen because it was on this date in 1914 that the first Workers’ Compensation Act was brought into effect in Canada.

This year ceremonies will be held April 28th to commemorate workers.

Note: Additional information, as well as additional resources such as ordering posters and crew talks are available on WorksafeBC's Day of Mourning page or at the bottom of this page.  read more »
