the ten best 3d school and graphics school in Canada

Hi today for the benefits of those who would like to take a class in 3d art and animation Ive decided to post a list of the best school in Canada, since I'm from there :O). I have make a top ten with the number one being the best but keep in mind that it is completely subjective as I have not gone to more than one school in the list! But it is OK it have almost a good school in all the province.

It is my school!! Very good programs and a good community, it is a small college so everyone know each other. Also ancient students always came back and sometimes became teachers. Good way to learn french to. The class are given mostly in french. OK On that one a biased but I assume it.

comments: Surely the best school in Canada for those who want to learn more about movies and cinema. They have a lot of student submission and take only the ones who are the best skilled or showing good art skill in general. Its also a little bit pricey but you should be able to receive grants and bourses from the government.

Hope you like it, don't be mad if you are 3d student from Canada and your school is not in the list. Ive I said it is totally subjective but Ive tried to put some school from each province. Yes I know I didn't find about Manitoba but it surely have one. Anyways the big center are covert and it have a lot more school in the big center in example in the region of Vancouver Ive count at least 5 school! It is the same in Ontario. If you have any suggestion of school you want to be promoted just send me a post in the comment with the links to the website of the school or institute. Feel free also to give comment about the school Ive mentioned already, it would be cool to have feedback from ancient and existing students.
