Day of Mourning BC Schools Project

Note: Given that April 28 falls on a Saturday, SCHOOLS WILL BE HONOURING THE NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING ON FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 2018.

THE GOAL is to educate our youth on workplace safety to help reduce young worker injuries and fatalities.

This year, a partnership of the BC Federation of Labour, BC Labour Heritage CentreBC Principals’ and Vice-Principals’ AssociationBC School Trustees’ Association, BC Teachers’ Federation, CUPE BC and WorkSafe BC has taken an important step to actively encourage more schools to participate in the Day of Mourning.

APRIL 28 – The National Day of Mourning was officially recognized in 1991 when Parliament passed the Mourning Act.  Now endorsed by government, labour and employers, the day commemorates those workers who were killed or injured on the job.
