Honouring the National Day of Mourning

Marked annually in Canada on April 28, the National Day of Mourning is dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives, suffered injury or illness on the job, or experienced a work-related tragedy. It's more than about the statistics, it's also about the loved ones, family members and co-workers that are impacted by the loss.

The National Day of Mourning also serves as a stark reminder of the importance UFA puts on one of our key strategic drivers of the business – health & safety. Our focus on health & safety comes from a place of caring, we want our employees to return home safe each day. It prompts us to raise our awareness of any inherent risks and continue to implement our work safety practices in everything we do and every decision we make.

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) encourages organizations, employees, communities and individuals to hold an event or simply observe a moment of silence at 11 a.m. this Sunday to honour those that have been injured or lost their life due to a workplace tragedy.

In 1991, the Parliament of Canada passed the Workers Mourning Day Act, making April 28 an official Day of Mourning. This day is now recognized in more than 100 countries globally as Worker's Memorial Day and International Worker's Memorial Day.
