Legislation to Authorize Forced Testing for HIV In the Event of Occupational Exposure: An Unjustified and Unnecessary Rights Violation – A submission to the Government of Manitoba

The Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network (“Legal Network”) understands that the government of Manitoba has received proposals encouraging it to enact legislation authorizing the forced testing of people for HIV and other diseases in situations of possible occupational exposure. The Legal Network wishes to take this opportunity to comment on this subject. It is our understanding that proposals under consideration are largely based on the Uniform Law Conference’s draft Uniform Mandatory Testing and Disclosure Act (the “Uniform Act”). We have prepared these comments accordingly.
