There are significant data and information gaps on persons with disabilities in Durham Region. Without access to timely, accurate and comprehensive labour market information and data on persons with disabilities it is difficult to appropriately plan programs, services and interventions to assist in labour market attachment for persons with disabilities. Access to labour market information and data will better allow programs and supports to be appropriately resourced, well-integrated and coordinated to minimize the barriers for youth with disabilities to achieve appropriate long-term attachment to the workforce.

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
