Correction to: Are foxes (Vulpes spp.) good sentinel species for Toxoplasma gondii in northern Canada?

The Original Article was published on 01 April 2022

Correction to: Parasites & Vectors (2022) 15:1–14

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors flagged the following to us:

“On pages 3 and 5 of the PDF, the following can be seen:

Sachs Harbour, and Ulukhaktok, NT, USA), Nunavut (Cambridge Bay, NU, USA)


the National Reference Centre for Parasitology (Montréal, QC, USA) for Inuit communities and the National Microbiology Laboratory (Winnipeg, MB, USA) for Cree communities.

However, these 2 regions and both national centres are in Canada, not in the USA.”

The published article has since been corrected, replacing ‘USA’ with ‘Canada’ where applicable. The publisher apologizes for this oversight.

As well, it was brought to the authors’ attention that one of the names in the author list had been provided with the incorrect spelling. Namely, ‘Géraldine-G. Gouin’ had been incorrectly spelled as ‘Géraldine G.-Gouin’. The error has since been corrected in the original article.
