Proclamation - National Day of Mourning, April 28, 2023

Event: National Day of Mourning

Date: April 28, 2023

Whereas the Mourning Day Act recognizes April 28 as a day for Canadians to remember workers killed, disabled or injured in the workplace and workers afflicted with industrial disease; and

Whereas the Corporation of the County of Northumberland recognizes the importance of Health and Safety through the Occupational Health & Safety Policy passed by By-Law 05-2023; and

Whereas the Corporate Mission “To be a best practices leader of County government and a collaborative partner with our member municipalities and community partners” includes the commitment to provide a safe and healthy workplace through the elimination of workplace hazards causing injury, harassment, and violences for all its employees, contractors, volunteers, and visitors; and

Whereas the Corporation believes that all services provided are of extreme importance, however, no job is so urgent that time and care cannot be taken to conduct work safely;

Now Therefore Be It Resolved That I, Warden Mandy Martin, on behalf of Northumberland County Council, do hereby proclaim April 28, 2023 as ‘National Day of Mourning’ in Northumberland County.”

Dated this 12th day of April, 2023

Mandy Martin, Warden
