    National Day of Mourning clc-ctc.ca
    On April 28th, 2005, workers across the country will mourn the loss of life and injury to their brothers and sisters due to occupational accidents and illness. Our theme this year is "Save lives, enforce health and safety legislation".

    In 1991 the Parliament of Canada passed Bill C-223, An Act Respecting a Day of Mourning for Persons Killed or Injured in the Workplace.

    Since 1984, more than 17,000 Canadian workers have been killed on the job.

    More than 18,000,000 workers have been injured.

    The figures on work place deaths in Canada from 2003, show that 953 Canadians lost their lives from work place causes. This is the highest annual figure in the 21 years since the Day of Mourning began.
