Epilepsy Durham Region is excited to launch it’s new Friends and Family Campaign. Can you help? We think we have made it really easy to lend a hand. We would like to invite you to ask 10 of your friends or family members to donate to our Campaign.

It’s pretty simple

  • Ask for the donation (only 10 required)
  • Complete the income tax receipt in your toolkit
  • As a thank you, give them one of our education bookmarks
  • Return the completed income tax receipt book and your donations to our office


All money that you collect will support the Young Adult Peer to Peer Program at Epilepsy Durham Region.


Epilepsy Ontario and our province’s Community Epilepsy Agencies are calling on the Ontario government to include funding for epilepsy education and support programs in this year’s provincial budget.

We are calling you you to sign our Petition to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to provide funding for education and support programs through Ontario’s Community Epilepsy Agencies in the 2019 Provincial budget.
