Hello everyone.
I have a question and am just wondering if someone could give me some usefull information
I am Ukranian curently living in London, UK and planning to come to Canada to get a degree in Photography and the job when the study is completed. And if I like it there I would like to move permanently.
I'm considering two cities - Calgary and Edmonton.
So, has someone got any info about media(photography) jobs in these two cities? Or maybe there is better option to choose Toronto/Vancouver over Calgary/Edmonton.
Thanks for the help!

I would recommend a look into Toronto and Vancouver as both cities are more media related. You may want a look at Montreal as well. I live in Toronto and recommend the CONTACT toronto photography festival held here every may 1 through 31 as a great source for networking and checking out opportunities here. If you get a chance look at Ryerson University, Ontario College of Art and Design and Sheridan college for their programs in photography. All have campuses in the Toronto area.
Toronto is probably the media capitol over here in respect to advertising and is the home to 5 daily national newspapers and is home to dozens of photography galleries.
I have tried to include some sites that may help below.

While Vancouver's an interesting city to photograph, certainly, I'd say that your better bet for pursuing a career would be either Toronto or even Montreal. I wouldn't bother with Calgary or Edmonton - those cities are much smaller and are more geared towards a career in natural resources/oil!
