National Day of Mourning – April 28th

National Day of Mourning is April 28th. Municipal Flags will be lowered to half-mast. 

In accordance with our Flag Policy, every year on April 28 we pay our respects to, and remember, the thousands of workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents.

We also honour the many families and friends who have been deeply affected by these tragedies.

Every worker has the right to return home safe and sound at the end of each work day. By working together – with employers, workers and our health and safety partners – we can prevent worker injuries and deaths before they occur.
