With the expansion of tick populations across Canada, there is an increasing risk of encountering ticks. As some species of ticks can transmit diseases to people and animals through a bite, it is becoming more important for Canadians to protect themselves and their families in a way that is both consistent and feasible.


To promote these adaptations, researchers at the University of Montreal have collaborated with the eTick team at Bishop’s University to develop TickTOOL. The primary objective of this platform is to provide practical information and advice so Canadians can integrate preventive behaviours which align with their lifestyle into their routines.


The development of TickTOOL was supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, though the Canadian Lyme Disease Research Network (CLyDRN).
