On Tuesday, April 28 we will be honoring National Day of Mourning. We will be flying our flags at half mast.

Canada officially proclaimed this date in 1991. The day commemorates workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness due to workplace related hazards and incidents. It is observed in over 80 countries worldwide. The  purpose of the day is to remember and honour those lives lost or injured because of their work and to renew the commitment to prevent further deaths, injuries and diseases by improving health and safety in the workplace.
