National Day of Mourning for Injured Workers

Wednesday April 28, 2021
12:00am to 11:59pm


April 28, the Day of Mourning was recognized by the Canadian government in 1990 to remember those who had died or were injured in their line of work. Although workplace deaths may seem like a thing of the past, in 2017, 951 Canadian workers—215 from Ontario—were killed on the job. Many occupational hazards, from back injuries to chemical exposures, are underrecognized and underestimated.
