Canada: Best Acting Schools

Canada has a number of highly respected acting schools. Here are the best acting schools in Canada.

Vancouver Film School (VFS)

VFS offers a one year Acting for Film & Television Programme.

VFS is truly one of a kind. I’ve never seen a program prepare an actor so quickly for the rigours of Hollywood. The foundations that are given to their students help them not only make their mark in this industry but gives them the tools to stay. Within a year, you leave school with a foundation that allows you to get your foot in the door and keep it there.
