Bill 108 2015

An Act to proclaim February 15 as Angelman Syndrome Day


Angelman Syndrome is a severe neurological disorder that is characterized by developmental delays, lack of speech, seizures and balance problems. Individuals with Angelman Syndrome require life-long care. Angelman Syndrome is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism due to lack of awareness.

Proclaiming February 15 as Angelman Syndrome Day helps to bring awareness to this very rare and serious disorder.

Therefore, Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, enacts as follows:

Angelman Syndrome Day

   1.  February 15 in each year is proclaimed as Angelman Syndrome Day.


   2.  This Act comes into force on the day it receives Royal Assent.

Short title

   3.  The short title of this Act is the Angelman Syndrome Day Act, 2015.



The Bill proclaims February 15 in each year as Angelman Syndrome Day.
