    According to Statistics Canada, in 2004, reported AIDS cases in Aboriginal and Blacks have increased marking an over representation amongst the populace. HIV cases are said to have risen amongst these groups since ethnic reporting in 1982. In 1982, Whites accounted for 91% of all reported AIDS cases.
    Out of all the "ethnic" groups Blacks are being shown as having the largest representation of AIDS and HIV cases. They are to date the smallest ethnic group in Canada.
