As you will have a visa (TD) for Canada, you don't require a transit visa for the UK.

You will be given a Travel Document in ND, which admits you to Canada.

I am sure that as long as you do not intend to leave the airport (airside) then you are only transiting and may be allowed.....There could be visa issues if you leave the airport or plan to stay longer than a few hours for transit depending on the type of passport you hold. You would need to investigate with regards to the type of passport you hold as that would reflect on whether you are able to land in the UK.

See if this helps......I googled your information and came up with this..

It looks as though you could be exempt from a visa as long as you purchase a through trip ticket i.e you so NOT stay over night in the UK and are transiting, using one airline, however, I would still speak to someone on a professional level about it. Maybe you could show this to your travel agent and get their opinion after reading this?

Since the OP is posting the same question in other Immigration forums, why doesn't he just contact the British Counsel and ask?
