On a windy and very cold Thursday, April 28th of 2016,the Italian Fallen Workers Memorial was finally unveiled after six long years of
hard work by the Committee,the donors and many volunteers. It was a poignantly beautiful and very well received ceremony with over
2000 in attendance at Columbus Centre (Villa Charities), in the heart of the Italian-Canadian community, in Canada's largest Italian
settlement. On that day, almost 1000 names were added to the growing list of Italian Fallen Workers, killed in Canada while working on
the soil of this beautiful country over the course of a hundred years. The following year, another 600 names were added to the ever
growing list. Today, there are at least another 600 to verify, bringing the grand total of Italian workers killed on the job in Canada to well
hope to build a better future for their families.
