ABOUT INQUESTS AND JUDGEMENTS OF INQUIRY

Although its day-to-day functions dwell on death, the Yukon Coroner's Service is designed to "protect the living" by preventing similar deaths in the future. Coroners pass on inquest jury recommendations to appropriate groups and individuals, including the public, agencies, institutions and ministries of various levels of government, and monitor the response to the recommendations.

Altogether, inquests and judgements of inquiry clarify countless facts and generate many recommendations every year. Although they are non-binding, each recommendation is designed to prevent similar deaths in the future. They also inform the public of what has been learned through the investigation and/or inquest process.
