HIV and the Criminal Law in Canada  
These guides from HIV and AIDS Legal Clinic of Ontario (HALCO), the HIV Legal Network, and Communities, Alliances and Networks (CAAN, formerly known as the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network), focus on HIV and criminal law for Indigenous communities. They explain what the law says about disclosing your HIV status to a sex partner. The longer guide also explains how to reduce your risk of criminal charges, and where to get help. The guides have short introductions in a few Indigenous languages.
