National Day of Mourning

April 28, 2017

The National Day of Mourning, held on April 28, has been established to remember those who have lost their lives, or suffered injury or illness on the job. It also recognizes those who have worked tirelessly to prevent exposures, injuries and fatalities on the job and to celebrate their victories.

Today, we remember Louise Pargeter, a USGE member who died while performing her duties as a Community Parole officer in Yellowknife. On this National Day of Mourning, we honour Louise, and all our fallen colleagues as we are reminded of the dangerous and important nature of the work of USGE members across the country.
