National Day of Mourning

National Day of Mourning

Remembering workers injured or killed on the job

Each year, Canada recognizes the National Day of Mourning on April 28 as a day for employers and employees to remember those who have died, as well those who are injured or stricken by illness on the job.

On this day, Saskatchewan renews its commitment to improve occupational health and safety in the workplace. The Saskatchewan legislature will read the names of those who lost their lives to their work into the Provincial Record.

The Canadian Labour Congress inscribes the names in the National Registry in Ottawa.
