BC Place lights up for National Day of Mourning

April 28th, 2021

BC Place will light up orange to recognize National Day of Mourning on Wednesday, April 28th.

Last year, 151 BC workers died from a workplace injury or disease. Across Canada, April 28th has been designated the Day of Mourning. As workers, families, employers, and communities come together at ceremonies held around the province to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease, it's a time to renew our commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces.
