Coroner Appointment

All coroners in Ontario are practicing physicians appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor on recommendation by the Solicitor General for the Province of Ontario and the Chief Coroner for Ontario. Coroners investigate deaths which may occur under certain circumstances as defined in The Coroners Act
They must determine in each case the identity of the deceased and the facts as to how, when, where and by what means death occurred.
