For 32 years the Cumberland Museum has co-hosted an annual commemoration of fallen workers, highlighting labour history and contemporary labour issues.

The three day, Miner’s Memorial event, welcomes hundreds of attendees from across Western Canada and as far away as the UK including workers and their families, activists, artists, writers, academics, community leaders, musicians and many others.

All are welcome to join us for this important weekend of solidarity, celebration, and remembrance.
