Depends on time of day is it an international to domestic connection?

I downloaded the Catsa app, and checked a few times today. Longest waits were at T3 INtl. The rest were 5-10 minutes

Does the T3 intl have Nexus and/or Priority lanes? I haven’t flown via T3 in years.

Does business get priority screening at Pearson? I thought I saw a gate last time but according the air canada website you do at other airports but not YYZ.

Any updates from people who are at T1 Domestic? I'm monitoring the queue/wait times off the CATSA website but I'm not sure how to reconcile what it says versus what I keep seeing on the news. I've got a flight out tomorrow at 2pm EST; normally I'd make sure I'm at the airport and cleared security by noon so I can grab something at the MLL. Should I just head to airport even earlier?

I would keep an eye on Twitter as that is where the angry people to go vent their rage. Do a search for @torontopearson and then click/tap on latest. That will get you some updated info. If people arent venting, youre probably fine.

All in all very smooth experience tonight at YYZ T1. I am Nexus. Landed at 7:20pm. Passengers with connections deplaned at 7:30. Cleared immigration/customs/security in 20 mins. Was at the gate for my dom flight at 7:50pm

Wondering if things are getting sorted. Not seeing the same kinds of delays being reported on Twitter or the CATSA website for YYZ in the last day so far.

Considering that the airport authority is asking for Federal intervention, I assume it's not really sorted out at all and could potentially get worse at any point.

I expect it varies day by day and hour by hour as crowds ebb and flow. And I've long since learned that the CATSA stats really aren't reliable.

This morning transborder Nexus was 10-15min wait, regular line looked to be 30 min + for security and another 30 min + for customs.

I was told by AC today that one reason many of their US flights are delayed each day by over an hour is for waiting on passengers - they don't want to have to deal with all the missed flights.

YTZ delays?

Reading a lot about YYZ delays going through security etc. and wondering what it's like at YTZ these days. Does it have the same long delays as I'm hearing about?

Considering a domestic trip on AC so I'm looking at T1 domestic at YYZ or going through YUL or YOW (final destination would be YQB).

I'm starting to wonder if a 50-90 min layover and two flights might be less net hassle.

Additional context: we have Nexus and would need to check bags.
