In 2001, the Edmonton Epilepsy Association received a grant from the Edmonton Community Lottery Board to develop a new series of epilepsy educational booklets. Following two years of research, writing, editing, graphic design work and printing, we were proud to introduce these exceptional booklets in December 2003. The booklet series was officially launched as part of March 2004 Epilepsy Awareness Month activities.

Since that time, the booklets have been periodically updated and reprinted.  For the past several years, UCB Canada Inc. has provided the EEA with unrestricted Grants that made it possible to print thousands of each booklet for free distribution to Epilepsy Associations, Hospital Epilepsy Clinics, and Neurologists’ Offices across Canada.

Thanks to the efforts of our sister association, Épilepsie Montréal Métropolitain, all eleven of our booklets have now been translated into French. We print them in Edmonton. From our office we distribute them to Hospital Clinics, Epilepsy Associations, and Neurologists’ Offices in Francophone Canada.

If you are not near an Epilepsy Association or Clinic, you can download and print our electronic booklets from the links below. In many parts of the world there is little or no epilepsy information available. Our website is averaging over 5,000 hits a month just for the booklets, including numerous hits from around the world. To date, our booklets have been downloaded from over 200 countries around the world!
