Hi I will be traveling with friends from LGA and have a connecting flight in Toronto for Vancouver. Is 1 hour and 44 minutes enough time? Do we need to go through customs and security? Also what terminals will we arrive and depart? We're flying with westjet.
Yes, you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Both flights will be in Terminal 3. You have plenty of time.

Coming from Israel I believe you will have to claim your bags to go through Canadian customs, but ask the agents in Toronto to make sure.

You shouldn't have to collect your bags or go through security, just Canadian Immigration and Customs.

Hello. I'm flying DTW to YYC via Delta then Westjet and connecting through YYZ with checked baggage. My connection time is 80 minutes. Is this enough time to make my connection and will I need to recheck the baggage in YYZ? Thank you.
Yes, that should be enough time. You shouldn't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto.
Hi I am taking a flight to California from Toronto with a connection in Vancouver , where will I have to do my immigration for USA?
You will go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance in Vancouver.
We are flying from Detroit to Calgary - connecting thru YYZ, all on Air Canada. How much time should we allow between flights for clearing customs? Most forums say we will have to pick up our bags and recheck them. But the YYZ airport info says that in some circumstances you don't have to do that. It said to contact your airline for more info. When I called Air Canada I didn't get much help.
Flying Air Canada from the US you almost never have to claim your bags when transiting Toronto. 60-80 minutes is sufficient.
