Day of Mourning

April 28, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 pm

WorkSafe BC will remember the 131 workers in B.C. who lost their lives in 2018.

On April 28, workers, families, and employers will gather at commemorative ceremonies across the province to honour the 131 workers in British Columbia who lost their lives last year due to workplace injury and disease.

When you lose a loved one, the pain never goes away. Join us as we reflect on those we’ve lost, and renew our commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces for everyone. We are all responsible for ensuring our workplaces are healthy and safe.

A public Day of Mourning ceremony will take place at Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver at 10:30 a.m., with the Olympic Cauldron being lit in honour of the day.

For a list of ceremonies taking place around the province, or to order complimentary decals and posters, please visit dayofmourning.bc.ca.
