From Government of Canada

New HIV cases are on the decline.

In 2014, there were an estimated 2,570 new HIV infections in Canada, down from 2,800 in 2011.

But the number of people living with HIV in Canada continues to rise.

In 2014 an estimated 75,500 people were living with HIV in Canada compared to the estimated 68,000 for 2011.

  • people with HIV are living longer due to medical advances in treatment
  • new HIV infections continue to occur

However, an estimated 1 in 5 people living with HIV in Canada are unaware of their HIV infection.

  • 28% of people infected via heterosexual sex are unaware of their HIV positive status
  • 20% of people infected via injection drug use are unaware of their HIV positive status
  • 18% of men infected via sex with other men are unaware of their HIV positive status
