Welcome to Artists’ Legal Advice Services (ALAS). We provide free summary legal advice and information to creators living in Ontario, Canada. Our legal clinic operates virtually and is available to artists across Ontario.

ALAS offers several ways to help creators get support

ALAS assists creators in three main ways: our educational sessions, our bi-weekly legal clinic, and our legal database. Our Events each focus on different areas of law and art, and seek to provide creators with guidance directly from industry and legal experts. The ALAS Legal Clinic is offered by Zoom appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and provides creators with an opportunity to meet one-on-one with legal practitioners who will offer relevant summary legal information. Our Legal Database includes an ever-growing number of articles and resources that provide summary information on legal topics that may be relevant to you.

Please note that an appointment is required for the Legal Clinic . To book an appointment, please visit our clinic appointment form page. We do not allow drop-ins.
