Day of Mourning

April 28

April 28 - Day of Mourning

April 28th marks the annual Day of Mourning

On this day, Unions, workers, families, and advocates commemorate the lives lost through workplace accidents and illnesses.

In 2022, the WSIB allowed 206 work-related fatality claims, including:

  • 11 from COVID-19
  • 120 from Occupational Disease
  • 75 from Traumatic Fatalities

And far too many others don’t get counted because the WSIB denies the claims.

On April 28th, join Your Union at events across Ontario to commemorate those lives lost and pledge to fight for the living.
