About us
How to Get Involved


People throughout the community donate their time to Epilepsy Toronto, working hard to make our agency better. We sure depend on it! In fact BuskerFest, our international street performer festival, counts on hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers each year. We appreciate their commitment and we would like to count on yours too.

There are many ways to get involved, from our exciting events, to general office help. We can assure you that you’ll feel good about contributing to the community, and you’re likely to meet great people and have fun as well. So please contact us to find out more about volunteer roles and how you can get involved

Bridge The Gap:

The program connects volunteer ambassadors with organizations for informative presentations which shed light on the benefits that people with disabilities bring to the workplace.  This  program enables people with invisible & episodic disabilities who are seeking employment to advance their communications skills and boost their confidence while educating companies and employers on the benefits of workplace inclusivity.

If you’re interested in sharing your story while helping others and breaking down barriers, contact Angini at 416-964-9095  to talk about becoming an ambassador. This program offers a forum for getting the word out while helping you shape the message you want
to deliver.  Learn more
