The half-masting of national, provincial and municipal flags is a protocol whereby honour and respect is demonstrated by the City of Brampton. The act of half-masting is a dramatic visual statement, which reflects the collective sorrow and mourning of the public.
Flags at City Hall will be at half-mast on April 28, 2019 in recognition of the National Day of Mourning. In 1984, the Canadian Labour Congress established April 28 as the National Day of Mourning in Canada to remember and honour those who have died, been injured or suffered illness in the workplace.
The Peel Regional Labour Council will host a Day of Mourning service of remembrance at the Milestones of Labour Monument in Brampton on April 28 at 10 am. Members of the public are welcome to attend. Click here for event details.
