ALAS is helping to develop a national network of federally funded legal services for artists across Canada. As part of this initiative, we are conducting an important Needs Assessment Survey to provide a fulsome picture of artists’ needs from coast-to-coast.  The results of the Survey will be presented to the Canada Council of the Arts in April 2020, and all responses will remain anonymous.

The deadline to complete the survey by March 10, 2020. This survey will take approximately 5 – 10 minutes to complete and at its end you may elect to enter into an exclusive draw to win an iPad Mini!

Background:

There are currently five legal clinics for the arts across Canada who work tenaciously to fund their efforts and service their local artists. A National Network of Legal Clinics for the Arts will unify and coordinate better access to free legal resources, services and information, empowering artists nationwide.

In August 2019, representatives from the individual legal clinics for the arts met with the Canada Council for the Arts and Canadian Heritage to relay the very real legal needs of the arts sector across this country.

The Canada Council for the Arts has committed to funding this Needs Assessment Survey for legal clinics and artists, which – WITH YOUR HELP – will lead to the  development of a Canada’s first-ever National Network for Legal Clinics for the Arts.

Please also help us identify persons and organizations we may have missed by sending us an email.

Your input is extremely valuable in providing outstanding legal service to Canadian arts. Thank you!
