Day of Mourning

About the National Day of Mourning

The National Day of Mourning is held every year on April 28th to commemorate those hurt or who lost their lives while on the job and to remember the importance of workplace health and safety. On parliament hill, and at all federal buildings, Canadian flags will be put at half-mast. Around the nation, candles are lit, people wear commemorative clothing, lay wreaths, and pause for a moment of silence at 11:00 am.
