I owe my lawyer $8000. If I file for bankruptcy in Ontario, can I make sure to keep the lawyer OFF the list? I want to ensure she gets paid.

No, you cannot leave off any creditor. That would be illegally preferring one creditor over another and that is not allowed by the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. Deliberately failing to list a debt could result in inability or delay to be discharged out of bankruptcy.
