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.
Epilepsy Toronto is a small organization that organizes a number of extremely large fundraising events in order to fund our programs and services. Scotiabank BuskerFest is both organized by and in support of Epilepsy Toronto, and takes place annually at the end of August. It is the largest epilepsy awareness event in the world, and it is the largest Busker Festival in North America.
