National Day of Mourning
April 28, 2022
The National Day of Mourning is not only a day to remember and honour those lives lost or injured due to a workplace tragedy, but also a day to collectively renew our commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace and prevent further injuries, illnesses and deaths. On April 28th the Canadian flag will fly at half-mast on Parliament Hill and on all federal government buildings. Employers and workers will observe Day of Mourning in a variety of ways. Some light candles, wear commemorative pins, ribbons or black armbands, and pause for a moment of silence at 11 a.m. Typically, hundreds of public and private ceremonies take place across the country.
