Fifty-three year old Carl Peltier died in hospital of injuries he sustained while working at the construction site Aug. 21, 2017.
Dr Emily Groot, regional supervising coroner for the north, announced the inquest on Wednesday. Under the Coroners Act an inquest is mandatory.
It will look into the circumstances surrounding the death, and the jury will make recommendations to prevent further deaths.
The inquest is expected to start Aug. 9, and last two days. It is scheduled to be held at the Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Centre in Little Current.
Seven witnesses are scheduled to testify, with Dr Steven Bodley presiding as the inquest officer.
