I can vouch for OIART (The Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology) in London Ont. I attended in 2001-2002.

OIART sounds nice but my experience was with the MIA program at Fanshawe college in London. I took Radio Broadcasting but I spent some time in the MIA and it was great. Jack Richardson used to run that program, he engineered those Heart albums on Mushroom records.

At that time in the 80's (i don't know now) it was a thousand applications for about 40 spots accepted. It was the same for radio. So best to set yourself apart with a good reel or a burning desire that shows up in writing with your application. At the time I was attending, there was a student union pub band "Red Alert" I think playing all the time. A couple of those guys would soon become "Honeymoon Suite" Still the programs biggest export AFAIK. Good luck with your search and have fun! Those were some great years and I have fond memories. heh
