Day of Mourning in Nova Scotia

Every year, the Day of Mourning is observed on April 28 to pay tribute to those who have died or been injured at work.  Visit to make a tribute, find employer resources and look for a ceremony near you.

The most important reason for making your workplace safe is not at work at all.
