I have rarely flown star alliance recently but have at least two trips coming up this year which are likely to be premium economy to the east coast of the US/Canada. It looks like Air Canada will be the best option for both of those. I was told I can get Velocity status credits on Air Canada - Is that correct? Assuming I can, is that my best option? Or would I benefit more from joining Air Canada's FF program? Thanks.

It's possible to earn Virgin points and Status credits but only on flights booked with a VA codeshare flight number.

Keep in mind you will have to clear both Canadian and USA immigration/customs if you route through Canada. Unless you are Canadian or American it will also require getting a Canadian Electronic Travel Authorization.
