Updating the Coroners Act

How do I participate?

Complete the online survey between July 13, 2018 and August 24, 2018.  

The survey takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

What is this engagement about?

The Coroners Act came about in 1958, and has not been substantially updated since then.  We know the public wants us to make sure that all unexplained or unexpected deaths in Yukon are investigated thoroughly by coroners who work in a professional, efficient and impartial Coroner’s Service. This can only be done if we update the Coroners Act to create modern legislation that is up-to-date to similar laws in other jurisdictions.

How will my input make a difference?

Your input will help us determine what issues should be covered in the new Act. We have an idea of what issues to cover in the new Act, but your feedback will help us uncover new issues or viewpoints we may have missed. Your input will help us created the most useful Act possible. 

Where can I find results?

We will post a What We Heard report here in September 2018.
