Saskatchewan Justice

The Coroner directs the investigation in order to determine:

  • The identity of the deceased;
  • Where they died;
  • When they died;
  • Why they died (medical cause of death); and
  • How they died (natural, accident, suicide, homicide, underdetermined).

The Coroner is assisted by the police.  In situations where foul play is suspected or apparent, the police will direct a criminal investigation and they will be assisted by the Coroner. 

The Coroner's investigation is fact finding and does not assign fault or blame.
