Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re connecting through Toronto Pearson, and a few things to help you fill the time between your flights.
When you're connecting from the U.S. to a domestic or international flight, you will be required to go through the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). Refer to the table below for specific details.
* Domestic flights are flights within Canada. ** Canada Border Services Agency combines the processes of Canada Customs, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and Canada Food Inspection Services. *** Some International to U.S. connecting flights at Terminal 1 do not require passengers to clear CBSA before clearing U.S. CBP inspection. NEXUS is a partnership program between CBSA and U.S. CBP that allows members to clear the border faster in both countries when travelling between the United States and Canada. CANPASS is a CBSA program that allows members to clear the border faster when travelling into Canadian airports. For more information about the Customs process, review the CBSA website
The fastest way to get around is using the Terminal LINK bus. It’s free, wheelchair accessible and connects you to Terminals 1 & 3 in minutes.
