Day of Mourning

To receive information about Day of Mourning and when resources will be available, please subscribe to our newsletter.

Every year on April 28 we pay our respects to, and remember, the workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents.

Sadly, Alberta lost 161 people to workplace injury or illness in 2022.

On April 28, we remember. Take a moment to honour people like Lorelai, whose life was lost in a motor vehicle accident while on the job. Read about Lorelai’s inspiring life as her mother, Sue, talks about the impact she made in her family and her community.
