WSIB Day of Mourning

Today is WSIB Day of Mourning, also known as Workers’ Memorial Day. Recognized by more than 100 countries worldwide, the day honours those who have died, been injured or suffered illness in the workplace. In Canada, the day coincides with the anniversary of the first Ontario Worker’s Compensation Act that was approved in 1914.

The day is marked in many ways including public ceremonies, wearing black and yellow ribbons, lighting candles and observing a moment of silence at 11 a.m. For more information on The Day of Mourning visit: https://wsibdayofmourning.ca/
