Region of Peel Recognizes National Day of Mourning

A day to remember and honour those who have died, been injured or suffered illness in the workplace.

Brampton, ON. (April 28, 2022) – Today marks National Day of Mourning, a day dedicated to acknowledging those who have lost their lives or suffered health consequences due to workplace hazards. Flags across the Region will be lowered to half-mast, and a moment of silence will be observed at 11:00am to remember those who are injured, ill, and lost their lives at work. Residents are encouraged to join one of the many events and ceremonies across the country, or light candles, in honour and reflection of the thousands of lives forever changed.

Our municipal partners are also observing this day. Follow them to view their messages - @BonnieCrombie, @Caledon_Mayor and @patrickbrownont.

On this day, we honour and remember those whose lives were lost during a workplace injury. My thoughts are with the loved ones whose lives will forever be changed. This day aims to renew our commitment to workplace health and safety to ensure the needs of our workers are recognized and met at all times.

Regional Chair Nando Iannicca.

About Peel's transition

The Ontario government announced the dissolution of Peel Region and the establishment of a Transition Board (TB) as part of Bill 112. The Transition Board was appointed to provide recommendations to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on a range of restructuring matters related to the dissolution of Peel Region to make Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon independent municipalities by January 1, 2025.
