Fallen workers honoured online in Day of Mourning ceremony 2021

Please join us along with other communities to commemorate the fallen workers in a moment of silence and virtual ceremony on Wednesday, April 28 at 10:30 a.m. at DayOfMourning.bc.ca

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual in-person ceremony has been cancelled however the community is invited to come together in grief and solidarity. 

The Day of Mourning is a national event organized by labour groups, unions and municipalities across the country who come together to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease. In 2020, 151 B.C. workers died with 63 fatalities due to traumatic injury and 88 fatalities due to occupational disease. Now, families and communities are left to mourn.  

In Squamish, the Workers' Monument in Pavilion Park includes the names of local residents who have lost their lives on the job, including firefighters, loggers, RCMP members and others. The monument is located just south of the Arts Council Building. 

The District wishes to acknowledge and remember the loss of fallen workers in our community and extends continued condolences to family and friends:
