Autres renseignements :

A Coroner is medical-legal death investigator appointed by the Minister of Justice upon recommendation from the Chief Coroner. The Coroner is responsible for ascertaining the facts surrounding a death and must determine:
- The identity of the deceased; and
- How, when, where and by what means the deceased came to their death.

The death is then classified as Natural, Accidental, Suicide, Homicide or Undetermined.

The Coroner can also make recommendations to help improve public safety and prevent future deaths under similar circumstances.

The Coroner's Service is a fact finding, not a fault finding, agency that provides an independent service to the family, communities, government agencies and other organizations.

Staff travel to other communities depending on the circumstances of the death(s).
