This guide is designed to answer some of your questions about HIV disclosure and the law. Most of it is about criminal law. It also has information about disclosure and other areas of law, for example: public health, privacy, employment, travel and immigration.
Gay men living with HIV developed this guide for:
– Gay men living with HIV, both long-term survivors and those diagnosed more recently;
– Gay men who think they might be HIV positive, but have not had an HIV test or have not tested HIV positive; and
– Gay men who want to know more about HIV and the law.
You may not like what the law says. You may not agree with it. But it is still the law. This guide will give you information about the law so that you can make more informed decisions about your life and your sex life.
This guide talks about laws that apply in Ontario.
