Labour Day is a day of rest, and commemorates the landmark victories of labour activists that have given us the labour rights we enjoy in Ontario today. As a result of decades of activism, Ontario’s workplaces are safer and more equitable.
This year, let’s give special thanks to the frontline workers who have carried us through the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic’s first wave. From healthcare workers to essential service workers, retail employees and everyone in between who has played a part in keeping our communities safe and supported: we thank you.
Throughout the long weekend, please practice caution when gathering with others and continue to employ good public health practices.
I wish everyone an enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Happy labour day!
