We remember the 158 workers in B.C. who lost their lives in 2017. On April 28, workers, families, and employers will gather at commemorative ceremonies across the province to honour the 158 workers in British Columbia who lost their lives last year due to workplace injury and disease. Join us as we renew our commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces for everyone. A public Day of Mourning ceremony will take place at Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver at 11:45 a.m., with the Olympic Cauldron being lit in honour of the day.
