Reviews of Critical Injuries and Deaths

In Nunavut, critical injuries to young people are not independently reviewed and deaths of young people are only reviewed by the Office of the Chief Coroner when the death has occurred in territory, to determine the identity of the deceased, and how, when, where, and by what means they died. 

After completing a review, our office may make recommendations to ensure accountability of the responsible department(s) and/or to make suggested improvements to legislation, policies, procedures, programs, and services with the intention of preventing similar injuries or deaths of young people from occurring in the future.
