Most thorough ad school in Toronto?

I am currently trying to evaluate the best or at least a reputable advertsing program at a Toronto college, university or Academy to pursue. I tend to find many mixed emotions regarding some of these programs. I spent a few months at the International Academy of Design & Technology but dropped out due to my own laziness and the fact it was leaving a huge dent in the wallet. But I seem to have found a casual interest for the advertising arts that I would like to develop into a full fledged passion as well as career/ business. A program that is well versed in tv, print, media and web applications. I don’t know anybody in any of the programs at the many colleges and universities that offer advertising. Any advice regarding what I should look for in a good exhaustive program would be greatly appreciated.

intro Most thorough ad school in Toronto?Uh oh. “Laziness” isn’t a good quality to suffer from if you want to break into advertising. We’ll assume for argument’s sake you meant lazy normal not lazy looking for an easy job. You need a lot of passion and determination to do well in a good school program and then ultimately out there in the cold world. We find Canada’s best programs are at OCAD and Humber. We’ve enjoyed the talents of many grads from other schools, too, but those two are your best shot at a formal education giving you a strong start. Check them out.
