Day of Mourning 2022

April 28, 2022, marks the third Workers’ Day of Mourning since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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 annual observance of this day will help strengthen the resolve to establish safe and healthy conditions in the workplace, and prevent further injuries, illnesses, and deaths.

As much as this is a day to remember the dead, it is also a call to protect the living and make work a place where people can thrive.

We must never forget those who came before us. Those who fought and demonstrated for our rights.  They changed laws and established legislation to guarantee our rights to a safe workplace.

Workplace Safety Rights Are Human Rights, together we can make a difference.

United in safety we work together. United Together, we have the power to make change.
