According to the CBC, the Dash 8 was at 9,000 feet. Out over Lake Ontario when the incident happened.

Drone collision with airliner near miss
I’m not going to say this didn’t happen…but I will say this:
A drone at 9,000 is a challenge.
A drone at least a few kilometers over Lake Ontario is a challenge.
Both of these at the same time? A real challenge.
The evasive maneuvering caused the 2 flight attendants, who up cleaning the cabin before landing, to get injured.
