Our mission is to promote independence and the best quality of life possible for adults and children living with epilepsy across the province.
About Our Charity
Few people know the facts about epilepsy, but 26 Canadians are diagnosed with it everyday. In fact, one in 100 Canadians lives with epilepsy. It is the second most common neurological disorder, after migraines. Even so, many people feel isolated or misunderstood because seizures are not openly discussed. As the province’s voice of epilepsy, Epilepsy Ontario is here to change that.
Your contribution can bring hope. We rely on our generous supporters to provide:
1. client services and research support
2. information and educational resources
3. provincial programs like summer camp & scholarships for kids with epilepsy
4. advocacy initiatives
When a child is diagnosed with epilepsy, parents turn to us for information. When the epilepsy community raises concerns, we engage local and provincial leaders to find solutions. Epilepsy Ontario touches the lives of countless people and their families. You can make a lasting difference. Please consider making a donation today.
