Day of Mourning

Maybe you’ve never experienced a close call at work or been the victim of a serious incident. But chances are you know someone who has. 

Every day on average, 637 Canadians suffer a lost-time injury or occupational disease at work. Two or three workers die each day.

In total, 232,629 Canadian workers suffered a lost-time injury or disease and 852 lost their lives in 2015.*

April 28, is the International Day of Mourning.

It’s a day to remember those injured or killed on the job and those suffering from an occupational il>lness. 

It’s a day to remember that every moment counts and to work safely.
