The public is invited to city hall tomorrow morning to take part in the Worker's Day of Mourning ceremony.
The event is to honour those who have died or were injured at work and to renew the city's commitment to improving health and safety in the workplace.
"More than a thousand workers are killed on the job each year in Canada, many of which are young or new workers," said Mayor Wayne Baldwin, who will speak at the ceremony.
"I hope the community will join us at City Hall on April 27 as we reflect on the past and focus our attention on what we can do to increase health and safety in the workplace."
The event is organized by the City of White Rock and CUPE Local 402-01.
"The number of people killed on the job is troubling," said Mike Guraliuk, chairperson of the local. "This ceremony is to advocate health and safety in the workplace while remembering past injuries and fatalities." The ceremony will start at 8 a.m.
