Day of Mourning April 28, 2022


Dear Friends,


The National Day of Mourning honours the memory of workers who have been killed, injured, or suffered illness caused by their work. This is one of the most sacred days on our calendar.


Day of Mourning events will take place in communities around the province. You can find a full list of events across BC at


We encourage friends, colleagues and members to attend an event near you. Once again, we can be together in grief, condolence and solidarity.


The BC Federation of Labour is co-sponsoring the Vancouver Day of Mourning with the WCB, the Business Council of BC, and the Vancouver and District Labour Council.


This year we are gathering in person to mark this important event. As we continue to deal with another wave of COVID-19, it is a reminder of the dangers facing working people.


Thursday, April 28, 2022

Jack Poole Plaza, Vancouver

10:30 am


If you are unable to attend in person, the event will be live-streamed at


We'll mourn the dead and fight for the living. That means we recommit to our efforts to protect the safety and well-being of working people by:

• improving workplace health and safety;

• rigorously enforcing occupational health and safety regulations – and holding those who violate them to account;

• preserving the dignity of the thousands of workers who suffer injury or illness; and ensuring full compensation to those who have been hurt at work.


Together, we'll do all we can to reach the goal we all share: a province where every worker can go home safe and healthy at the end of every workday.





In solidarity,


President·························· Secretary-Treasurer
