This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Assuming you have a visa for Canada (which you should to be able to fly there), you are exempted from the direct airside transit visa requirement, as explained on the website. The rules for transit to Canada are the same than for US-bound travelers so the answers to this earlier question apply.

I have a visa for Canada. If my luggage is through, then i need not pass the UK border control. Right ?? – Arindam May 28 '14 at 9:00
@Arindam Exactly. No need. – Aditya Somani May 28 '14 at 9:03
