Welcome to Epilepsy Niagara

Happy Epilepsy Awareness Month!

We are so excited to announce that Welland Bridge 13 and the Horseshoe Falls will be illuminated in purple for Light the Night, an initiative to raise awareness and celebrate Purple Day. To learn more about times and how you can view the illuminations, please check out our Featured Stories below.


In this exceptional time of enormous scale and human impact regarding the outbreak of COVID-19 (novel CoronaVirus) all of us at Epilepsy Niagara feel deeply for those who have been impacted by this outbreak. We would also like to take this time to thank all first responders, medical staff, and all those part of essential services like those tireless staff at grocery stores, for standing strong during this pandemic.

As you can imagine, we too, have closed our office temporarily. However, we are still providing services while working remotely although, modified to individuals and families via online and telephone support.

We want to thank our funders (United Way Niagara and Niagara Community Foundation) for their support of the Niagara community during this challenging and devastating time.

We are not government-funded, and so we are continuing to read updates and reach out to government officials regarding relief for epilepsy agencies across Canada.

Here’s How You Can Help! You can call or email your MP and MPP and tell them that the government needs to provide temporary funding for charities doing health and social services work – including Epilepsy Niagara – so that we can continue to provide services.

Please remember! Our MP’s and MPP’s are swamped during this critical time. They may not be able to answer your call or email right away, so give them time to respond. Please remember to “pack-your-patience” and to remember to be kind during your ask.

These are challenging times; we wish everyone safety and good health.
