APRIL 28 – Day of Mourning for workers injured, have died as a result of work

Every April 28 we remember workers who have been injured on the job or who have died as a result of their work. 

In 2019, 36 Saskatchewan workers died because of their job. Many more work-related deaths aren’t counted by our workers’ compensation system. Working safely has taken on new meaning in 2020 as we face a pandemic that puts workers at risk every day.

We can’t gather together in person this year to pay tribute and honour those we lost, but several Saskatchewan Labour Councils have organized tributes online.
