ETA while connection in Canada

Hello there!
I hold both American and Israeli passports. Am traveling from the US to YYZ and connecting to TLV.
Since I am an Israeli citizen, I need to enter Israel with my IL passport.

ETA wise, is it enough to have a US passport to avoid issuing an ETA, even though my outbound travel requires an Israeli passport?

Thanks,
R

For US citizens, and ETA is not required.

As this is a Canada customs related question rather than an Air Canada or Aeroplan specific query its been moved to the FT Canada destination forum for further discussion.

You don't need an ETA, but you need to travel with both of your passports.

Show your US passport to the airline at check-in, thus confirming that you don't need a Canadian ETA.

Show your Israeli passport at immigration in TLV.

OP may well be asked for proof of admissibility to both Canada and Israel. The connection in Canada does not change that. In that case, OP would simply show both passports, thus demonstrating his admissibility to both countries. If not asked, the US passport alone will suffice at check-in/boarding.

A US passport suffices for both, no?

Yes. US passport good enough to waive the $7 eTA.

Thank you all!
