volunteerMore than 30 years ago, volunteers established Epilepsy Durham Region (EDR) in an Oshawa school auditorium, with a wish list for a typewriter, pens, and paper. EDR has transformed into a dedicated, thriving, frontline Community Epilepsy Agency that provides local community programs across Durham Region. As EDR grows, so does the request for services and we need your help.


As a staff of two, EDR would not be able to help the nearly 32,000 individuals on average we reach each year without the aid of our dedicated volunteers. The quest to heighten awareness, dispel myths, and provide education is urgent. Please consider volunteering your time or skillset this year, and help to empower the 6,500 individuals and their families living with epilepsy.
