checking a bag and transfer advice sfo-yyc-lhr

Hello,

I will be flying a UA crj-200 into Calgary (yyc) with a 1.5 hr connection to LHR on air canada. Will I need to check my bag, since if I gate check it I have to pick it up in yyc. But if I check my bag, do I need to reclaim my checked luggage in Calgary and recheck it since Calgary doesn’t have sterile transit (or does it??). Finally is my connection time enough to even clear immigration and get to my next flight?

Thanks

Sorry for replying without being able to answer your question, but I have to ask, why this routing? UA has nonstops from SFO to LHR.

If only airports gave some sort of guide for these sorts of things.

Arrive, follow purple 'connection centre' signs , clear border via international connection lane, re-screen, and await flight.
Assume it's all on a single ticket so baggage should be through checked with the two star airlines mentioned.
