Pink Shirt Luncheon

On our first Pink Shirt Luncheon, people from our community joined us for a lunch on Pink Shirt Day and learned how bullying affects the Canadian workforce.



Every worker has a right to a healthy and safe workplace. One that protects them from injury, illness, and wage loss. A healthy and safe workplace must be a respectful one – free from violence and harassment. On April 1st, 2019 an amendment was made to General Regulation 91-191 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, addressing workplace violence and harassment.

On Pink Shirt Day the Boys and Girls Club of Saint John is hosting a Luncheon with prominent members of the city to raise information about spreading kindness at the workplace.
