HIV testing

Resolution number
  1. HIV positive persons are not a threat to public health or safety;
  2. Instituting mandatory HIV testing for all prospective immigrants is discriminatory since this would be the only group for whom mandatory testing is imposed;
  3. Testing could significantly harm people identified as being HIV positive who live in countries with coercive laws or practice;
Therefore be it resolved

That the CCR oppose mandatory HIV testing for prospective immigrants and raise its opposition with Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
