April 28 is a National Day of Mourning to recognize workers injured or killed on the job. The Canadian Labour Congress first declared the Day in 1984. More than 100 countries now observe the Day.
The CLC and local labour councils are busy reshaping plans for Day of Mourning. In-person events will not go forward. But the Day of Mourning will be marked with ceremonies held virtually this year. Details of the ceremony for Toronto and how to attend will be made available at the Toronto & York Region Labour Council website.
