Completing the Survey in Support of the Formation of Canada’s First-Ever
National Network of Legal Clinics for the Arts

In an effort to develop an essential national network of federally funded legal services for artists across Canada, we are conducting an important Needs Assessment Survey. The results will give a fulsome picture of artists’ needs from coast-to-coast and will be presented to the Canada Council of the Arts in April 2020. Please complete the survey by March 10, 2020. Your responses will remain anonymous.

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!


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

In order to provide the Canada Council with concrete data of artists’ needs, we need to ensure we connect with the full diversity of Canada’s artists from every region across the country. Please share this survey with organizations and artists OR please help us identify persons and organizations we may have missed by sending us an email.

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