Fanshawe pays respects during National Day of Mourning


Every year on April 28, Canadians pay their respects and remember the workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents during the National Day of Mourning.

This year, it’s especially important we recognize the contributions of our essential workers who continue to work during COVID-19. Our students, graduates and faculty have become front-line workers in the healthcare field and we have many staff, faculty and students who work in essential jobs that are important to our safety and well-being. We don’t always see them but they are there – working to keep us safe and keep our College facilities running. We acknowledge and thank each of them for their efforts and service.

We also honour the many families and friends who have been affected by these tragedies. In recognition of the National Day of Mourning, all flags at Fanshawe’s campuses will be lowered to half-mast on Wednesday, April 28, 2021.
