Day of Mourning Ceremonies

Day of Mourning Ceremonies – Friday, April 28, 2017

April 28 is recognized every year as the National Day of Mourning across Canada for respecting persons killed or injured in the workplace or died of an illness resulting from their work. It is also a day to commit each and every one of us to eliminate workplace illness and injury.

The City of Winnipeg together with our Civic Unions and Associations invite all civic employees to attend one of the Day of Mourning Ceremonies being held at various City worksites on Friday, April 28, 2017.

For more information, please visit CityNet - Day of Mourning

Please consult with your supervisor if you wish to attend one of these ceremonies. Your supervisor will determine whether your attendance at one of the ceremonies can be accommodated without undue impact on service delivery.

Thank you,

Roberta Marsh
Senior Manager, HR Services

A 'Thank You' to transit drivers could go a long way (Aug.16,2016)


The disturbing incident of the passenger spitting on a Winnipeg Transit driver last week occurred at the same time I was doing research into how often riders said "thank you" when exiting a bus.

The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is operated by the federal and provincial governments, so why would a human resources or benefits professional need to explain them to employees?


Seasoned HR professionals know many employees seek them out for information on more than just their own company’s policies and benefits. The CPP, although government-operated, is actually an employee benefit for retired and disabled workers. The employer and employee each contribute 4.95% of the employee’s wages for this benefit.

The Winnipeg Civic Employees' Benefits Program is proud to introduce a Pension Estimator for its members and future beneficiaries.  Try it and see how small changes throughout your career can change things.
