Sharing your story may help you heal and can help prevent more tragedies.
If you've been personally touched by workplace tragedy, you can submit your story to our online database of worker stories.
We will review and validate each submission before posting to the web site. We can only post Canadian stories, and we can only post a story when we have the permission of the worker or the worker’s next of kin.
Workplace injuries and fatalities have a ripple effect throughout the life of the worker and their family.
To submit your story to this online database, please send us an email explaining how the tragedy occurred and how it has affected you and your family in various areas of your life - physically, emotionally, professionally, financially, etc. Send your story to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that by submitting your story, you are authorizing Threads of Life to post information about this injury, fatality, or occupational disease on the LifeQuilt.ca web site.
We will review your submission and contact you with any questions or clarifications prior to posting on the website. Please allow us 3 to 4 weeks to post stories to the website.
We believe that by sharing our stories, we are putting a face to workplace tragedy. Thank you for sharing your story.
