The Criminal Code requires every province and territory in Canada to establish a review board, with the responsibility of determining the placement of a person who has been found by the criminal court to be unfit to stand trial or not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder. The board decides whether the person should be detained in a hospital, discharged into the community with conditions or, in the case of the not criminally responsible, absolutely discharged. The Nunavut Review Board (NRB) was established in 1999 with jurisdiction to hold hearings involving criminal cases before the Nunavut Court of Justice upon referral to the Board.
