Day of Mourning Ceremony – Sunday April 28

On April 28 each year we come together to remember those who were killed on the job, and to recommit to working to ensure that every worker goes home safe at the end of every shift.

Sunday April 28, 2024
10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Jack Poole Plaza
1055 Canada Place
Vancouver, BC

We are pleased to be co-sponsoring a Day of Mourning ceremony once again this year along with the BC Federation of Labour, the Business Council of BC, and WCB (WorkSafeBC).

We will hear from speakers representing the co-host organizations, Canadian Labour Congress President Bea Bruske, as well as from Genevieve Cragg, whose son Charlie Cragg was one of the workers who was tragically killed when the Inginika tugboat sank in February 2021.

The event will begin at 10:30am.
