The Canadian Epilepsy Alliance are looking to hear from those with personal experience in the management of seizures with cannabis. With research in the area only just in its embryonic stages, lived experience is of great interest to all; i.e. what's worked, what hasn't; who's interested in learning more, etc.
By completing this short survey on marijuana use and information, whether you have used it for seizure control or not, you will help us better understand what the community needs on this developing topic.
We're asking that you please complete the survey by November 22nd. Results will be posted, shortly thereafter. To complete the survey, please click here: Epilepsy & Marijuana - Cannabis Usage Survey

Welcome! In this blog you will find some important information about how to live a worry-free summer with epilepsy. There are many helpful tips as well as interesting topics that can help educate you on the importance of living your best life with epilepsy and how this can be achieved.
Hi! My name is Rebekah. I am a twenty year old paramedic student who has epilepsy. I have been seizure free for three years and am happy to share with you the tips and tricks that I have learned to having a safe and seizure-free summer. I cannot wait to help you understand that living with epilepsy does not have to be dreadful, and that the summer can still be one of the most fun times of the year. With a positive mindset and good support, we can all make it through this together.
A Message from the Minister of Health and the Minister of Finance
Canadians are proud of our publicly funded health care system, which is based on need and not ability to pay. However, prescription drugs are not covered in a consistent way across the country, and too many Canadians cannot afford the medicines they need.
In Budget 2018, the Government established an Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare (“the Council”), led by Dr. Eric Hoskins, to provide independent advice on how to best implement national pharmacare in a manner that is affordable for Canadians and their families, employers and governments.
