Lyme disease human cases maps

The number of reported Lyme disease cases by year and by probable region/health unit of acquisition (environmental exposure), Canada, 2009-2016. This figure is a series of maps of Canada from Manitoba east to the Maritimes. It represents Lyme disease cases reported from 2009-2016 for which health region of acquisition was available. For each year, the map shows the health regions where Lyme disease cases were reported to have been acquired. The colours represent categories of the numbers of cases reported for each health region. The colours represent the following categories in order of increasing size: 0, 1-6 cases, 7-21 cases, 22-40 cases, 41-75 cases and 76-224 cases.

For each year, the locations of acquisition of the disease are provided by some provinces; there are no data for the provinces in grey (because either there are no cases reported by these provinces or data on location of acquisition are not available for cases acquired in these provinces).

Data on locality of acquisition are not available for cases reported in British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Quebec (from 2009-2015); therefore, there is no case on the map from these provinces.
