Day of Mourning: BC Schools Project

The National Day of Mourning, April 28, was officially recognized in Parliament in 1991 with the passing of the Mourning Act designating one day a year be set aside to commemorate those workers in Canada who were killed or injured on the job.

The BCTF has partnered with the BC Labour Heritage Centre, along with the BC Federation of Labour and WorkSafeBC, to develop a Day of Mourning (DOM) Schools project that teachers can use to raise awareness of workplace safety with students (future workers) in our schools.
