National Day of Mourning


Each year in Canada, we take April 28 to remember workers we lost to workplace injuries and illnesses​ with a National Day of Mourning. Canada was the first country to commemorate this day, but it is now observed in over 80 countries around the world.

The National Day of Mourning is not only a day to remember and honour those lives lost, and those injured, due to a workplace incident, but also a day to collectively renew our commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace to prevent injuries, illnesses and deaths.

MHCA® WORKSAFELY® has committed to worker safety for over 30 years and continues to advocate for and work toward increased worker protection in the heavy construction industry.

We encourage all Manitobans to remember those we lost and to commemorate and honour these workers.
