Calendar Campaign

Our 2015 Calendar Campaign is now in full swing. Grade four students across the province submitted pictures about epilepsy awareness that display the pages of the calendar. Each Calendar is $20 and supports ENL. For more information you can call Elaine at 709-722-0502.

Extensive Library
Here at ENL we know how important it is to be informed. Members and organizations can borrow from our resource centre for personal learning or to help teach others and promote awareness of epilepsy issues.
Services and Programs
Epilepsy Newfoundland and Labrador offers its members and interested individuals a wide range of services and programs to meet your needs concerning all aspects of living with epilepsy.
Thrift Shop
