West Nile virus is in town!

West Nile virus is present in Quebec and the risk of infection is higher in town. It is important that you protect yourself against mosquitoes — especially in the early morning and early evening. Using insect repellent and wearing long, light-coloured clothes offer the best protection.

Every day in Quebec, approximately 3 people take their own lives and 8 people are hospitalised after attempting suicide. Suicide is never an option; there are always solutions. Everyone can help prevent suicide.

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is caused by bacteria transmitted through the bite of a tick. Ticks can be found in woodlands, tall grass and forests in certain regions of Quebec, especially between the months of April and November. To learn more about Lyme disease and how to protect yourself, read the Lyme Disease page.
