In the article “HIV in Canada ̶ Surveillance Report 2017” published on December 6, 2018, the last sentences in the Results section describing data on perinatally HIV-exposed infants were incorrect as they described results for 2017 rather than the entire reporting periodFootnote 1. They should have read:

“Between 1984–2017, 50.0% of perinatally HIV-exposed infants were from the Black race/ethnicity, while 23.3% were reported as Caucasian and 18.1% as Indigenous. The maternal region of birth for the majority of infants was North America (42.3%), followed by Africa (38.6%). The highest proportions of perinatally HIV-exposed infants were reported in Ontario (34.4%) and Quebec (25.3%).”

This was corrected on January 11, 2019.
