Day of Mourning - April 28Across Canada, April 28 has been designated the Day of Mourning.

Every year, workers, families, employers, and others come together at ceremonies held around the province to remember those who have lost their lives on the job, and re-new our commitment to creating safer workplaces.

This year, the Vancouver ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 28, at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Jack Poole Plaza area, at 10:30 a.m.
