Thank you for the feedback. I didn't think the distinction was that different, but you are clearly right. I will make some changes to my blog to correct this information.

For the record, an update on my paper application! I ended up calling a couple weeks ago to check up on my application status, lo and behold the customs agent told me there's a huge backlog getting letters out, and that I had been conditionally approved on Nov. 19! Scheduled my interview the past Friday at Pearson, didn't have to answer any questions. Updated my employment history and the CBP/CBSA agents there told me I was approved. So once again, around 2.5-3 months from mailing of applications to approval.

Can you use the nexus lane for non-domestic and non-US flights (i.e. international flights)?

Yes anywhere in Canada you will get priority screening.

Edit correction at most major airports you get priority screening or queue jump see website for details

You can also use Nexus for TSA Pre.
Only on airlines that participate and only if you are selected. You must enter your nexus pass if in the KTN area of your reservation ahead of time

If your departing the USA on a non USA airline then you may not have this option. Air Canada and west jet participate. Porter does not

Most non us airlines do not participate with some exceptions like etihad and Aeromexico

Also a good idea to learn more about what precheck gives notably not removing shoes jacket and laptop

The best benefit that precheck gives is the shorter lines. Keeping shoes on is just a bonus.

Signing up for myself and three kids under 18. Would prefer to do it online but do people know if they charge the $50 USD for kids online? I know it is free on the paper application.
this site is like a drug. Its forum is the drug dealer.

Hmm, maybe this is something new, because when I last flew Cathay Pacific about a year ago, I don't recall using my Nexus card. I remember getting on the flight and wondering why I was never asked for my Nexus card. On the other hand, when I fly to the US, Nexus comes in handy every time ... although lately, it seems like everyone and their mother has Nexus, at least at YYZ.

So we booked an interview for our baby (CYWG) for February and yesterday before a flight, stopped by and asked if we could do it then, which they did. Saved us a trip to the airport, took maybe 10 minutes. Funny they didn't ask for our ID, being the parents.

Sorry I guess I should have said most major airports. You need to look for trusted traveller line up or at some airports just ask to jump the queue I do it at billy bishop all the time. Some dirty looks at times lol

See list here

^ Thanks! I didn't know that certain lines were designated for trusted travellers, even for international flights outside the US. I will definitely make use of this next time I will be flying internationally without connecting to the States.

At Canadian airports, there will be a NEXUS sign indicating the lane where you go to use the NEXUS lane. e.g. for domestic flights at YYZ Terminal 1, it's at the far right end of the lanes and it's well marked. At YQR it's at the far left. Not all airports have it yet, but most do.
