International Day of Mourning
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM MST Grant Notley Park 116 Street NW & 100 Avenue NW Edmonton, AB T5K 1W5
Know your rights; Use the tools; Defend our wins.
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 preceeding year.
This past year saw 161 workers die as a result of their job which is an approx 10% decline from last year. While this decrease is welcome news we know all too well that one is too many and we must know your rights; use the tools; defend our wins. That said, the Workers Compensation Board doesn’t offer presumptive coverage for COVID-19 so we will never know the true total of workers who lost their lives just trying to make ends meet.
Please join us for the ceremony and a catered lunch from 11 am – 1 pm
We look forward to the opportunity to pay tribute to the 161 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.
