The growth of dating apps is one suspected culprit, though no studies have been conducted to prove a link between online hookups and the spread of STIs, said Wong. Last year, the province recorded 3, cases of gonorrhea, a dip from the roughly 3, a year earlier, but a major jump from , when only 1, cases were reported. On the other side of the country, Nova Scotia has also noticed a steady rise in gonorrhea and chlamydia cases since , primarily in the Halifax area, said Dr.

Trevor Arnason, regional medical officer of health for the central zone, which includes the provincial capital. With young girls and many boys in Canada being vaccinated against human papillomavirus -- a major cause of cervical cancer -- and changes to guidelines advising that lower-risk women be tested less often for that malignancy than previously recommended, there is likely less screening for gonorrhea and chlamydia, Arnason said.

Such STI testing was often performed at the same time as a Pap smear. Alberta, for example, recorded 4, cases of gonorrhea in , up from about 3, the previous year. In , the latest year for which national figures are available, there were almost , cases of chlamydia, the most commonly reported STI in Canada, with females accounting for two-thirds of infections, says the Public Health Agency of Canada PHAC.

Between and , chlamydia rates increased by almost 17 per cent. Gonorrhea is the second most commonly reported STI in the country.

About 19, cases were recorded in , a jump of more than 65 per cent from Males had higher rates than females, with the highest number of cases among those aged 15 to 29, PHAC says. From to , the rate of infectious syphilis in Canada increased by almost 86 per cent. In , a total of 3, cases were reported, with nearly 94 per cent occurring among males; those aged 20 to 39 had the highest rates and men who have sex with men were among those at most risk.

While the three STIs can be successfully cured with antibiotics, untreated chlamydia and gonorrhea can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease in females, affecting fertility.

Untreated, syphilis can cause damage to the brain, nerves, eyes, cardiovascular system, bones and joints. In extreme cases, it can be fatal. About a half-dozen cases have been reported worldwide, notably in Japan and elsewhere in Asia.

The Quebec woman had not travelled to Asia, but her boyfriend had been in Thailand and China and had unprotected sex in both countries, researchers reported. As a result, Wong said public health officials are closely monitoring gonorrhea cases "because we do have some concerns that our treatments are not going to be effective anymore.
