Sounds like an excellent project.  Don't know about Canadian law, but
when we established the New York Neuropsychology Group (in 1979), we
applied for incorporation as a nonprofit scientific and educational
organization; in New York State, this goes through the Secretary of
State, I believe.  Has many advantages.  Separate application needed
for nonprofit mailing privileges.

You might want to query Society for Neuroscience: they are vey
interested in student development and participation, and include quite
a few Canadians.  Don't recall web-page address, and cn't look for it
while composing this reply, but phone number is (202) 462-6688.

n.b.: you might be interested in NYNG's  May 2 conference (NYU Med Ctr,
New York City): "Neuropsychology and the Neuroimmune Dialogue" (for
students, real cheap...).
