Do you have legal questions or concerns related to your artistic practice?

Visual Artists’ Legal Clinic of Ontario (VALCO),  is a pro bono initiative between CARFAC Ontario and Torys LLP ; providing CARFAC Ontario members with Summary Legal Advice about their legal rights and responsibilities. VALCO can answer your questions relating to copyright, commercial contracts, labour law, commercial leases (for studio and gallery spaces), tenants’ rights, or incorporating as a business.

Please note that VALCO (Torys LLP) is only able to provide summary legal advice and cannot represent you other than in exceptional circumstances to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
