Day of Mourning

April 28, 2024 at
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM MST
Grant Notley Park 116 Street & 100 Avenue Edmonton, AB T5K 1W5

Join us and workers across the country as we call for SAFE WORK NOW!

Every year we gather in Grant Notley Park at the Broken Families Monument to honour those who have lost their lives as a result of their jobs in the preceding year.

This past year saw 165 workers died as a result of their job which is approximately the same as last year. The fact that this number isn’t coming down is shows that employers aren’t particularly concerned with ensuring worker safety. There are many laws in place that should ensure worker safety but we are not seeing the incident rates drop like we were promised. We must defend our rights and call on all employers to provide SAFE WORK NOW! Every worker has the right to come home at the end of their shift no matter what.

Please RSVP on the side so we know how much food to provide and join us for the ceremony and a catered lunch from 11 am Р1 pm.

We look forward to the opportunity to pay tribute to the 165 fallen brothers, sisters, and comrades in person this year in a long needed moment to come together and heal. We hope to see you there.

Sorry, this event has ended.
