The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia (EANS) is a registered Canadian charity that supports individuals living with epilepsy in Nova Scotia. Formed in 1980, EANS serves adults and children with epilepsy, their families, friends and the community at large. We seek to promote a better understanding of this common neurological condition through public education, awareness programs, and advocacy. EANS also offers services to New Brunswick and PEI as needed.

Since its incorporation EANS has grown from a space in a church basement to a professional office in the Medical Arts Building on Spring Garden Road in Halifax. Client services have increased, and education, recreation, and volunteer programs are constantly being developed. Volunteers are an integral and important part of the work the association undertakes.

Our Mission:

To provide education and resources to support persons living with epilepsy, their communities and support ongoing research.

Our Value Statements

  • All people touched by epilepsy are important to us at EANS. We welcome them with respect, compassion and enthusiasm.
  • A person’s life should not be defined or unnecessarily limited by epilepsy. We support individuals towards independent and fulfilled lives.
  • As long as people with epilepsy need us, we must exist. As the needs change, we respond.
