Connecting Flight from US-YVR-International, customs twice?

Connecting Flight from US-YVR-International, customs twice?

I was informed that after I have reached my connecting flight destination in Vancouver, I will have to go through another custom check on my way to the international terminals. Is that true?

I've been told it is a simple passport and board pass check, but I've also been told that it requires a full body check again along with carry on baggage check.

If so, how strict and time consuming will the CBSA process take?

Yes, you will go through immigration and security at YVR.

Same as you would at a US airport even if you were only connecting to an international destination.
