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 ( 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. Eight provinces are currently participating: AB, SK, MB, ON, QC, NB, NS, NL with others to be added soon.

What’s New

Version 1.2.3

We have implemented the feature "Resend Activation Email" on the sign in page, allowing users to send themselves a new activation email if the initial one did not reach their inbox (including any spam/junk folders) or was accidently deleted. In-app confirmation messages have also been added for both the "Resend activation email" and "Forgot your password?" options.

App pretty good. Upgraded from 1 to 4 stars

Installed this app on an iPhone XR running iOS 13.4.1. Signed in using my Facebook profile and found that the only features that would do anything were the map showing current location and the Contact Us.

HOWEVER, when using guest access it appears to function properly although you cannot submit a report.

If you sign in using your Google account all functions appear to work properly.

(I did not try to create an account on the eTick system.)

Bottom line: An OK app that shows you tick reports in your area or any selected area, but it does not work with a Facebook login, at least not for me.
