Int'l Transfer at YYZ (BOS - YYZ - HND) - what to expect?

Hi all!

I am flying from Boston to Tokyo (HND) on Air Canada, with a 1hr 30min stop at YYZ . All flights are on Air Canada and into/out of T1. Can someone help guide with what to expect for the process for customs? I'm a US citizen, not expecting to check luggage. I travel quite a bit but rarely have had a connection of this length at an international airport (always domestic US).

I've read that it is possible to bypass the CBSA check, that there are no kiosks (only T3), etc but I've never been to YYZ and am not sure what to expect.

Thanks in advance!!

It's very simple -- just follow the signs to the E gates. No need to fill out a landing/immigration card on the inbound flight or go through security again at YYZ.

Thanks so much!

Is there a passport check/border control or is it all considered a sterile transit area? Since I have a relatively short window I just want to be sure I know what to expect (many a time I thought I've had plenty of time to get from one gate to another only to be stuck in long lines for x or y verifications).

Thanks again!
