Nova Scotians living in mining communities pay tribute to miners who lost their lives on the job as part of Miners’ Memorial Day ceremonies. Each year, on June 11, Nova Scotians gather to remember miners killed or injured on the job and help preserve the province’s rich coal-mining heritage. “Miners’ Memorial Day is an important reminder of Nova Scotia’s history,” said Brooke Taylor, acting Minister of Environment and Labour. “The day also serves as a reminder for government, employers and employees to renew our commitment to protecting the health and safety of all workers throughout the province.” Formerly known as Davis Day, Miners’ Memorial Day began in memory of miner Bill Davis, who was killed in New Waterford during the mining strike of 1925. Every year, the United Mineworkers of America organizes Miners’ Memorial Day events throughout the province.
