I will tell what I know about this song, too. I know that the title YYZ is actually the international identification code of Toronto Airport (aka Pearson International Airport, Pearson International, Pearson Airport).
YYZ is the IATA code, the identifying code that appears on passenger luggage and that is used by pilots during navigation. Every airport has a code. Toronto Airport was named in honor of the late Canadian Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Lester Bowles Pearson.
In this song Rush use Morse Code so they maybe (but I'm not sure) also mention Toronto area phone code - 416 or/and Greater Toronto Area code - 905 (Greater Toronto Area - with suburbs). - Metal_Treasure
