Last year, 140 B.C. workers died from a workplace injury or disease. When you lose a loved one, the pain never goes away.

Across Canada, April 28 has been designated the Day of Mourning. As workers, families, employers, and communities come together at ceremonies held around the province to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease, let’s renew our commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces.
