Injured Workers Day – online


details for online May 31 vigil and June 1 events

This year, as we gather virtually the day before a provincial election, we have the opportunity to combine our voices and tell whoever the incoming government is that injured workers will be there from day one, holding them to account.

June 1st – ONLINE – Injured Workers’ Day – Online rally & town hall
10:00am – Online Rally
11:00am – Town hall
Join on Zoom:

Injured Workers’ day commemorates June 1st 1983 when over three thousand injured workers descended on Queen’s Park and forced a government committee looking at major changes Ontario’s workers’ compensation system to conduct a public hearing on the steps of the Legislature.

This year, join Workers’ Comp Is A Right and allies from the Ontario Federation of Labour, Steelworkers, CUPE, for a morning of rallying cries, calls to action, songs/skits, and messages for the government that will be elected on June 2nd.

Then stick around at 11am, where anyone in attendance will be invited to answer the question: What do you want the government elected tomorrow to do for injured workers?

Language interpretations services can be provided. Please email us at to arrange specific languages.


If you’re in Toronto, you are welcomed to also join an in-person action from 3-4 pm outside the WSIB building at 200 Front St, organized by Injured Workers Action for Justice (IWA4J) and Justicia (Justice for Migrant Workers – J4MW).  More info:
