Over the past 50 years, Epilepsy Toronto has been the place where Torontonians living with epilepsy can learn more about their condition, get the help they need and be a part of a family of caring and supporting people. Epilepsy Toronto prioritizes individual needs, the importance of living as independently as possible and the benefits of community engagement. Our programs address all aspects of epilepsy from the first diagnosis of a child, to the struggles that young people face, to adult needs such as employment and relationships.
