Probably not. YUL is a very simple airport, with one building, whereas at JFK you have many terminals connected by light rail.

At YUL, coming from the US you'll arrive at gate range 49-89, and your international departure will be from 1-68. You'll have to clear Canada customs formalities but won't have to clear security.

I don't know what (presumably) US-passport holders must do, but you are making this unnecessarily complicated. It will all be pretty clear when you get there, and you have a lot of time.

If you mean the Canada eDeclaration app - yes. Though Iíve not been through a valid terminal since installing it due to IRROPs yet lol. But any kiosks of when YUL uses should accept it and saves hitting buttons on one kiosk.

In larger Canada airports, making a US --> INTL connection isn't all that different than a regular domestic connection in the US. Just be sure to have your passport in case you need it for one of the steps. The last I remember doing this (at YYZ though YUL is probably the same), I don't think I used any kiosk at all. Basically just followed the signs to my connecting flight.

Was just curious, but why do you have to go through customs when connecting to a flight in YUL but not in the other Canada airports like Toronto?

Jeez Louise. This is not brain surgery. A US to international connection at YUL is simple. Just go with the flow and follow the signs. If you are this nervous or anal about travel, maybe you should just stay home.
