Canadian Coroner and Medical Examiner Database: Annual Report - ARCHIVED
Journals and periodicals: 82-214-X
This annual report presents national data on the deaths investigated by Coroners and Medical Examiners (C/ME). These deaths are examined based on their type - natural, accidental, suicide, homicide or undetermined. In addition, the data will be placed in context based on detailed information specific to the circumstances surrounding the death, such as the location of the event leading to death, the activity at the time of the event leading to death, and the use of any safety devices. C/MEs hold data on deaths reported to the offices in their province or territory. The Canadian Coroner and Medical Examiner Database (CCMED) project grew out of recognition that the availability of national level information about the circumstances of deaths that come to the attention of C/MEs will strengthen the ability of the health, justice and other sectors to take measures to protect Canadians from further preventable deaths.
