The Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) Education Centre and school buildings will be joining other Ontario government establishments in flying the Canadian flag at half-mast today to mark National Day of Mourning, which takes place annually on April 28.

This day is dedicated to remembering the thousands of workers who have been killed, injured or have suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents, and honours the family and friends who have also been affected by these tragedies.
