Day of Mourning

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

Sadly, Alberta lost 162 men and women to workplace injury or illness in 2018.

On April 28, we remember. Take a moment to honour lives forever changed.
