YOW>YYZ>LAS Baggage Questions and general info

Flying through YYZ to Vegas on Westjet. (All Terminal 3)
Checking bags in Ottawa and look for procedure once we arrive in Toronto.

Am I correct assuming that once we land at YYZ we need to collect our luggage. Are we then to proceed to WJ counter to check in and drop off luggage?

We are both NEXUS members so we are clearing CATSA and US customs in the NEXUS line correct! ( Will our BP's have TSA pre check)?

After clearance we have quite a bit of time and have Plaza Premium lounge access. Is there a choice or only one.
How are the services there?

Any and all advice and tips are welcomed!

AFAIK inbound WS flights transiting to US will have the bags tagged to US final destination. At YYZ these are sent to US CBP.
You deplane and head to US CATSA preclear. There is a priority lane for NEXUS. As s you are on Canadian soil TSA Pre does not appy. After security your BP is scanned, if your bags has been photo'ed you will head to US CBP. If not, you are sent to a waiting room and a monitor will let you know that your bag has been photo'ed and then you can head to US CBP.
At US Transborder departure lounge options are limited. Look at the PP lounge before commiting the cost of the visit (if it applies to you)
