It depends widely on which airport you decide to visit.
YEG is one of the worst and not even worth the visit. YVR and YYC accepts spotters/photographers much better. That's as far as my experience goes.

I'd agree with Ivan - don't bother visiting YEG. I am certain there's an APM there whose girlfriend was a plane spotter and when she dumped him he vowed to make all spotter's lives hell. probably not true, but might as well be - the security folks are a joke there.
YYC - 2.5 hour drive south of YEG and a totally different story. No issues at all, very few spots where you aren't welcome.
