I am traveling from London to the US, but have a 3hr layover in Toronto, Canada. My flight lands and departs from the same terminal. My questions is, do i have to go through Canadian and U.S. Customs after landing?
In Toronto you will proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance.
I've been looking for answers to this question without much luck. I'm planning flying from CDG to YYZ, then on to DCA. I have Global Entry. Will I need to clear Canadian customs at YYZ, then get cleared through Global Entry en route to the U.S.? Or do I go straight to the Global Entry portal upon landing, without doing the Canadian customs? About how long should this take if I check a bag?
In Toronto you will go straight to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance where there will be Global Entry Kiosks.

Hello,
I will be arriving from Pakistan on PIA flight on Terminal 3 and, going to Edmonton i.e. YEG (final destination) via Aircanada flight using. I bought single ticket from KHI TO YEG connecting via YYZ.

My question, do I need to carry my checked baggage from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 in Toronto (YYZ) or it will be automatically transferred to Aircanada or I have to pick them up on Terminal 3 go to custom and Drop right in Terminal 3 ? I am very confused. Called Air Canada but it seems no one knows. Thanks.
You will have to claim your bags to go through Canadian Immigration and Customs. If they are tagged through to YEG, you should be able to re-check them at the transfer desk afterwards.
