If someone has a valid USA tourist visa and their flight transits in Toronto can they approach the immigration officer at Toronto airport and apply for asylum? The asylum seeker does not have a visa to enter Canada, he is just in transit. Any help would be appreciated.

He won't be able to transit through Canada without a valid Canadian visitor visa - so no.

I've been accepted as asylum in Germany
I will share some of what I know, here in Germany they will probably put him in jail if he applied for asylum at the airport
I think this applies to all countries
in the best case he will be held in a transit area. this difficult and very expensive to live.
so I do not recommend this way and always better to apply asylum in the country .

Yes - you can apply for asylum in Toronto. You will need to apply for a transit visa in advance and be approved in order to be able to board the airplane and transit through Toronto.

But the time between connecting flight is 6 hours. So the embassy will issue the transit visa
It's impossible for any of us to say if the transit visa will be approved. You'll have to apply and see what happens.
