The security process checks all carry-on bags and personal items as well as each individual person according to the rules set out by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA).
Make sure your baggage does not contain any restricted items. Your flight out of Pearson may have different restrictions to that of the airport you departed from.
For a complete up-to-date list of restricted items please visit catsa-acsta.gc.ca.
Passengers should prepare for enhanced security screening of electronic devices. While enhanced screening is random, make sure all electronic devices are charged and can power on and remove devices from their cases.
