National Day of Mourning – April 28

In 1984, the Canadian Labour Congress first declared April 28th Canada’s Day of Mourning – a time when workers, families, employers, and others across Canada come together to remember those who were injured, disabled, or have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational diseases.

188 workers in Alberta died as a result of workplace injury or illness in 2013. Their loss is felt by everyone.

Please take a moment to honour their memory.
