ÉILEPSIE GASPÉSIE SUD is an independent community organization that received its charter on December 22, 1987. The Association, founded in 1988, is dedicated to the promotion and defense of the rights and interests of people living with this problem. Its mission is to promote, raise awareness and demystify epilepsy at all levels (family, school, work and others) for better social integration.
The Association Épilepsie Gaspésie Sud covers Ascension-de-Patapédia to Percé. That is to say three MRCs (Bonaventure, Avignon and Rocher-Percé).
