–  Between 1998 and 2006, almost 1/3 (32.4%) of Aboriginal people who receive an HIV diagnosis are under the age of 30, compared to 21% of HIV-positive tests among non-Aboriginal persons in the same age group.

–  First Nations youth aged 0 to 29 years made up 20.6% of reported AIDS cases among First Nations people. Among Inuit and Métis population, 31.8% of reported AIDS cases were reported to be Inuit and Métis youth.
