Canadian Hosting Providers - how do you handle copyright and trademark complaints

I'm wondering how other Canadian Hosting Providers handle copyright and
trademark complaints about customers on their network. I'm thinking of
just handling them the same as a DMCA notification should be handled but
since there's no forced takedown provisions in the Canadian copyright act
(that I know of?) it's difficult to say what is better. I'd kind of like
if our customers could enjoy some freedom from the sledgehammer of the DMCA
*but* still being subject to copyright and trademark infringement laws of
course. I have to admit - this is my ignorance. I'm quite familiar with
the DMCA and the litigation that usually ensues during american trademark
infringement already but not Canadian copyright laws or trademark laws.
I do intend to consult with a real lawyer about this eventually but I want
to have intelligent questions or suggestions before that happens.
Also how are trademark infringement issues handled differently than
copyright issues in Canada?
