Marked annually in Canada on April 28, the National Day of Mourning is dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives or suffered injury or illness on the job due to a work-related tragedy.
“Today, on this National Day of Mourning, my thoughts are with those who have lost a family member or friend to a work-related accident and those who have been personally affected themselves,” says Mayor Black. “The Town of Carleton Place will continue in its diligent efforts to ensure the health and safety of our staff in order to get them home to their families at the end of the day.”
PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT UPDATES
The Ontario government is launching the COVID-19: Tackling the Barriers website to help businesses overcome the unique challenges created by the global pandemic. Businesses working to retool their operations to produce health-related products, or those that want to continue their operations in this new environment of physical distancing, can submit any potential roadblocks to the website. The province is prepared to allow temporary changes to provincial rules and regulations in order to remove any barriers that are hindering business and negatively impacting Ontario's supply chain.
