National Day of Mourning

On April 28 each year, we observe a Day of Mourning for every worker in British Columbia who was killed, injured or made ill on the job. The Manufacturing Safety Alliance stands in solidarity with all BC workers, their families, friends and loved ones as we mourn the 140 BC workers who lost their lives last year. 

Join us for a moment of silence at 10:30 am as we remember those we have lost. 

As we continue to adapt our lives and work due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we realize that we cannot gather together to mourn the loss this year. Though we won’t be there in person to share in the grief of the passing of our fallen workers, the Alliance joins all British Columbians in remembrance. 

The Day of Mourning also provides us with a collective opportunity to renew our commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace and support BC workers to go home safe to their families, every day. 

Let’s come together today to remember all those whose lives have been lost or forever changed by injury or illness from their work.
