ILAE-North America

The current ILAE-North America region was constituted in 2006, comprising English speaking North American Chapters of Canada, the United States of America, and the English speaking Caribbean (represented by Jamaica). The Mexican chapter, although geographically in North America, is a member of the Latin American Regional Commission.

Our goals and aims are aligned with the ILAE’s emphasis on current and emerging knowledge on epilepsy prevention, diagnosis, treatment, research, and optimal comprehensive epilepsy care.
