April 28th is National Day of Mourning

On National Day of Mourning we remember workers who have suffered work-related disability, disease and death. The Canadian Labour Congress first declared the Day in 1986. More than 100 countries now observe the Day too.

Unions, labour councils, families and community partners who gather annually on April 28 to mourn these losses also vow to prevent further suffering. They follow with action in the workplace and community pressing for work that promotes dignity and health.
