About this app

The emergence of Lyme disease and the rapid geographical range expansion of certain tick species in Canada are important issues for public health authorities and the public in general. A citizen science project called eTick invites the public to participate in the monitoring of ticks in Canada by submitting tick photos via a mobile application or a web site (eTick.ca) for identification by trained personnel. The identification results (usually returned within 1 business day) appear in real time on a public interactive map so that visitors can visualize all entries for a specific area and/or examine individual submissions. All eTick products and services (application download, image identification, consultation of public data) are free of charge. Nine provinces are currently participating: BC, AB, SK, MB, ON, QC, NB, NS, NL with PEI to be added soon.
