Improving Lives. Inspiring Courage.

The BC Epilepsy Society is a provincially incorporated non-profit, and federally registered charitable organization dedicated to serving British Columbians living with epilepsy, and their families.

 

Our Mission

To empower, educate and support British Columbians living with epilepsy and their families, and support research to make their lives easier.

 

Our History

The BC Epilepsy Society was incorporated as a registered charity on August 17, 1959, under the leadership of pediatric neurologist Dr. Norman Auckland.

Dr. Auckland believed that an increased understanding of epilepsy, among those living with the disorder and their families, could help those living with epilepsy to help themselves.

The Society’s programs and services today remain true to Dr. Auckland’s original vision of support and education.
