I came across this information today and thought it was worth sharing. From the SOCAN website:
Choosing the Right Lawyer
As a songwriter, you want a lawyer who is familiar with copyright matters, as well as all aspects of the music industry. In Ontario, there is an organization called Artists Legal Advice Services [(416) 367-2527] which provides legal advice and educational services at no cost to Ontario artists of all disciplines. In Quebec and other provinces, your provincial Bar Association can provide names of lawyers working in your area.
What a fantastic resource. Thank you SOCAN!
