• Baggage & Pets

    Reimagining Baggage

    You may notice surveying, new signs, and processes around baggage handling areas at Toronto Pearson until February 10, 2017. We’re testing new ways to improve your experience at the airport.

    • Passengers may notice employees wearing yellow vests and approaching passengers to discuss their baggage experience. Additional signage may also be present in these areas.
    • Passengers may also be approached about their experience with carry-on baggage past the security areas in both terminals. These tests and prototype methods focus on people and behaviour to identify innovative ways to improve baggage services in the future.

    Transporting Animals

    If you’re travelling with an animal, transporting an animal via cargo, or receiving an animal from a foreign country, please contact the airline and/or freight forwarder of your choice located at either the Cargo West Facilities or Cargo Area 5. Importing an animal into Canada? Consult the information published by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).


    For the comfort of all passengers, pets are not permitted inside any terminal buildings unless they are:

    • service animals; or
    • animals travelling through Toronto Pearson (these must be kept in a kennel at all times).


    Nature Called, We Answered!

    Pet Zones at Terminals 1 and 3 provide a comfortable space for dogs to relieve themselves.

    Terminal 1 Departures level: exit curbside doors at Aisle 15 and turn right.
    Terminal 1 ground level: exit curbside door S and turn right.
    Terminal 3 Arrivals level: exit curbside door A and turn left.

    All locations are before security.

    Toronto Pearson is committed to providing a comfortable experience for all of our guests – including our four-legged friends. However, only travelling pets are permitted inside the terminals, and for their safety and comfort they must be in a kennel at all times.
