A federal funding agency has issued a national call for new Lyme disease research as the country’s population of disease-carrying ticks continues to climb.

The research initiative is the first step in the federal government’s recently announced $4-million, four-year plan to combat Lyme disease, which is now the most common vector-borne illness in Canada.
