Ontario Epilepsy Guidelines

The Guidelines are recommendations developed to improve the quality and consistency of epilepsy care in Ontario and to ensure that all Ontarians with epilepsy have timely access to treatment, including surgical care. The summaries include information about what treatments are available, what the referral pathway is and where Ontario’s specialty centres are.

The Provincial Guidelines Series is the result of a collaborative effort between Critical Care Services Ontario (CCSO), the Epilepsy Implementation Task Force (EITF), and Provincial Neurosurgery Ontario (PNO). The EITF was established in June 2013 and was co-chaired by Dr. Carter Snead, Pediatric Neurologist at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, and Brenda Flaherty, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of Hamilton Health Sciences.
