I am a Chinese citizen flying with Air China from Calgary to Beijing, with a connection at YVR (the Calgary-Vancouver flight is operated by Air Canada). Do I need to collect and recheck my luggages, go through security and customs at YVR? Thank you!

You don't have to do anything with your bags in Vancouver on the way to Beijing if both flights are on the same reservation. There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada.
Flying from Beijing landing in Vancouver then onto Calgary booked with same Air Line. Do you pass thru customs in Vancouver when changing planes? Also seems that the flight from Beijing is always late, will they put you on another flight if connection is missed. Thanks
Yes, you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. Yes, if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on a later flight to Calgary.
Chinese national, US green card holder, have Canada eTA in hand. Portland==>YVR(through Air Canada)==>China Guangzhou (through Southern China) , transition at YVR the same day. 1) Do I need to go through Canada Customs and Immigration at YVR, 2) Do I need to identify and recheck in my bags with southern China at YVR?
