1. VFS is a good school, there are better ones, and there are far worse ones.
The teachers in the 2D program are excellent. I know, as I've worked alongside many of them.
2. Job Placements? No. The animation industry is merit-based--that is your skill level will determine whether or not you gain employment. No school in North America--worth their salt--will offer job placement, because a student can complete the academic standard of the program and still not be of sufficent skill to work in industry.
3. You'd probably have to be considered a landed immigrant--you'd have to consult with the Canadian government and Immigration Canada for that info. Most like you would need to accquire a work visa--which means you would have to have a job waiting for you here, or some company to sponsor you.
4. Payscale for starting animators/artists varies--its can be somewhat low around $400 per week to modestly good around $1000 per week. It depends upon the job and the studio.
5. See answer #3
6. I don't know. Its a long way to travel, its expensive to live in Vancouver, the course costs a fair amount of money and the industry is variable. You may get good results, you may not.
