Increasing incidence of ticks and tick-borne diseases (TBD) across Canada has become a significant emerging public health concern with limited awareness of risk to human and animal health, as well as adoption of preventive behaviours in response to tick and tick-borne disease risk. In response to this knowledge gap, the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association conducted a study in collaboration with expert partners to characterize baseline public awareness of and preventive behaviours towards tick and TBD risk. The study respectively surveyed veterinarians and pet owners across Canada, as well as a group of hunters, anglers, and trappers largely residing across Ontario.
