Canadians mark National Day of Mourning

Over 10,000 New Brunswickers were injured on the job last year, including eight people who lost their lives.

WorkSafeNB is encouraging everyone to honour those killed or injured on the job by observing the National Day of Mourning, held each year on April 28.

Tim Petersen, acting president and CEO of WorkSafeNB says we all have the right to perform our jobs in a safe and healthy workplace and we all have the right to return home safely to our loved ones.

A ceremony will be held at 11:45 a.m. Friday at the Fredericton Firefighter Memorial on Brunswick Street.
