The National Day of Mourning is a day to remember and honour those lives lost or injured due to a workplace tragedy. It’s also a day to collectively renew our commitment to improving health and safety in the workplace and to preventing further injuries, illnesses and deaths.

Every year, thousands of workers, friends and families of fallen workers gather at ceremonies across Canada to recognize the National Day of Mourning for workers killed or injured on the job.There will be several Day of Mourning Wreath Laying Ceremonies taking place across Newfoundland and Labrador on April 28th, 2024.  If you or your organization are interested in laying a wreath, please contact the individual identified for your area.
