The Day of Mourning was established by the Canadian Labour Congress in 1984 to coincide with the passing of the Workers Compensation Act of Ontario on April 28, 1914. It was rapidly taken up around the world and is now an internationally recognized event to remember workers who have become ill, been injured, or died as a result of their work.
The Day of Mourning will be observed in cities across Ontario on April 28th. For more information, visit the following links.
