In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
May Allah (swt) reward you for your concern.
Qasr salaah will be performed once one has left the boundaries of Toronto (if Toronto is his residence). If while traveling, a salaah is missed, the qadha (make-up prayer) will be the qasr (shortened) prayer. For example, one missed his dhuhr prayer whilst traveling, so his qadhaa will be 2 rakaats of dhuhr (qasr). Even in the case where he returns home and he is making up the prayer he has missed in travel, he will pray 2 rakaats (qasr). However, if he reaches home and there is still time to pray the salaah, he will pray 4 rakaats. If he misses this prayer now, he will have to pray 4 rakaats.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
