There is an apparently-good photography program at Ryerson. I have been told they have access to professional equipment and studio space (as well as discount programs with local retailers), which would seem like an important consideration.
When I visited the OCAD exhibit last year, the photographers working on corporate-style photography were showing some really nice stuff (the food photography was excellent); the art photography, on the other hand, was uncreative, technically-poor trash, so I am really not clear if they are separate departments, or what is going on there.
From a self-education point of view, while he is waiting and looking, might I recommend Strobist
and Light, Science and Magic
