About 75% of Canadians will have at least one HPV infection in their life time, not just genital warts but HVP can also cause plantar and finger warts.
10%-30% of the adult population is infected with HPV.
The risk of infection is higher among sexually active people under age 25.
5.5 million cases of HPV are reported every year.

Considering Canada has a population of about 34,000,000 people that is kind of low.
