Canadian Positive People Network (CPPN)

Réseau canadien des personnes séropositives (RCPS)

The CPPN acknowledges that its corporate office in Peterborough (ON) sits on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe Missis​sauga adjacent to Haudenosaunee Territory and in the Territory covered by the Williams Treaty, and that its operations and management office sits on the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg people.  We recognize and deeply appreciate the contributions that Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous Peoples have made to shape and strengthen our local communities, our provinces and territories, and our country as a whole.

Le RCPS reconnaît que son bureau principal à Peterborough (ON) est situé sur le territoire traditionnel de la Anishinaabe Mississauga adjacent au territoire de Haudenosaunee et sur le territoire couvert par le traité Williams, et que son bureau des opérations et de gestion se trouve sur le territoire traditionnel non cédé du Peuple Algonquin Anishnaabeg. Nous reconnaissons et apprécions profondément les contributions des Métis, des Inuits et des autres peuples autochtones à la formation et au renforcement de nos communautés locales, de nos provinces et territoires et de notre pays dans son ensemble.

Today is the National Day of Mourning

The CPPN joins Canadians from coast-to coast-to-coast to remember and to honour our fellow Canadians who died or were injured resulting from an accident at the workplace.


Since 1991, Canadians have recognized April 28th as the day we come together as a nation to pay tribute to those who have experienced a devastating tragedy or serious accident while at work. But, we also save this date to do our part to ensure that our fellow citizens are safe while at work and to do what we must to prevent future workplace-related death and grievous injury.


On this day, the flag atop our Peace Tower flies at half-mast, as do flags on all federal government buildings across the country. People from all over will hold vigils in remembrance – if even while maintaining social distance during the current COVID-19 crisis. Some will lay flowers, some will light candles, and all will honour the lives of countless thousands of individuals who died or were disabled at work. The CPPN joins them today by lighting our own candle of remembrance alongside them.


Today and everyday, the CPPN stands in solidarity with the families, friends, and loved ones who are mourning the loss of someone they cherished. And today, we affirm our own commitment to help in any way we can to prevent needless workplace accidents.
