National Day of Mourning
APRIL 28 – The National Day of Mourning was officially recognized in Parliament in 1991 with the passing of the Mourning Act designating one day a year to 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.
DAY OF MOURNING BC SCHOOLS PROJECT
The BC Labour Heritage Centre has developed a set of materials that teachers can use in schools throughout the province to raise the awareness of workplace safety with students (future workers) in our schools.
