National Day of Mourning

 

On the National Day of Mourning, April 28, Canadians will pay tribute to workers who have died, were injured, or made ill from their work.  It is also a day on which to collectively renew our commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace and prevent further injuries, illnesses and deaths.

This year, the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety acknowledges the sacrifices of frontline and essential workers who have died or become ill serving during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On April 28, the Canadian flag will be flown at half-mast on Parliament Hill and all federal government buildings. Traditionally, employers and workers have observed the National Day of Mourning by lighting candles, laying wreaths, or wearing commemorative pins, ribbons or black armbands.  In light of COVID-19,  the  Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety encourages organizations, communities, and individuals to pause for a moment of silence at 11:00 a.m. on April 28, and consider holding, attending, or supporting a virtual event.

To mark our school district’s commitment in observance of the National Day of Mourning on April 28, the Canadian flags within Coast Mountains School District will be lowered to half-mast early Tuesday morning, April 28 and raised early Wednesday morning, April 29.

More information about the National Day of Mourning can be found on the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety website: www.ccohs.ca/events/mourning or visit the BC Day of Mourning website at dayofmourning.bc.ca.
