PROJECT TO HONOUR THE MEMORY OF ITALIANS WHO DIED IN WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS

An informal Committee, which this Consulate General is part of, has recently been established, through the initiative and coordination of Cavaliere Marino Toppan, with the purpose of honouring the individual memory of the many Italians who, from the post-war period to the end of the past century, lost their lives due to job accidents, while working to give a better future to their families and build this great Country.
The Committee intends to collect by the end of 2010 the names of all the Italians who have died as a result of workplace accidents and, with their families’ consent, to engrave their names on a memorial to be erected within the first six months of 2011 in a place of symbolic significance to our Community.
The Committee appeals to the collaboration of all in order to form the list of those who lost their lives in the workplace accidents, thus ensuring that no one is forgotten.  Therefore,
 
Anyone who knows of a relative or acquaintance having perished due to a workplace accident, between 1945 and 2000,
 
is invited to submit the worker’s name to COMITES  – which has readily made itself available for this purpose – by e-mail, by post or phone message.  The e-mail address, mailing address and telephone number of COMITES are as follows:
COMITES – Circoscrizione Consolare di Toronto
c/o Casa Del Zotto
3010 Dufferin Street, Unit 2
Toronto, Ontario M6B 4J5
Tel. 416-746-5674//Fax 416-746-8692//email:  comitestoronto@yahoo.ca
 
Please provide any information, including, if possible, the permanent address of the deceased worker’s family members, so that they may be contacted in order to obtain their consent to the engraving of their relative’s name on the memorial.
