Day of Mourning Ceremony April 28, 2023
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PST Yukon Worker's Memorial, Shipyards Park 100 Ogilvie Street Whitehorse, Yukon Y1A 6L3
You are invited to join us at 12:15pm on Friday, April 28th, 2023 either online or in person at the Yukon Worker’s Memorial in Shipyards Park, 100 Ogilvie Street, Whitehorse, Yukon as we honour injured and deceased workers and their families in the Yukon territory.
Marked annually in Canada on April 28, the National Day of Mourning is dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives, suffered injury or illness on the job, or experienced a work-related tragedy.
The National Day of Mourning is not only a day to remember and honour those lives lost or injured due to a workplace tragedy, but also a day to collectively renew our commitment to improve health and safety in the workplace and prevent further injuries, illnesses and deaths.
Representatives of our communities will renew our pledges to keep workers and workplaces safe in an outdoor ceremony during the noon hour on Friday.
Please RSVP if you would like to attend in person or receive the link for the livestream to watch from anywhere with an internet connection.
The Yukon Federation of Labour would like to thank the Worker’s Safety and Compensation Board for their continued support for the National Day of Mourning and to worker safety year round.
