Epilepsy Awareness Month and Purple Day 

March 26, 2022


On June 28, 2012 the Purple Day Act received a Royal Assent in Canada; and


Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder that is not well understood and affects approximately 1 in every 100 persons in Simcoe County; and


Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that affects each person differently, with the effects ranging from mild and relatively minor to extremely serious (which includes death); and


Purple Day is celebrated annually on March 26 to increase understanding, reduce stigma and provide support and advocacy in relation to epilepsy awareness.


That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim March as EPILEPSY AWARENESS MONTH and March 26, 2022 as PURPLE DAY in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.​
