This was immediately followed by a HYD OVERHEAT and GREEN HYD LO LVL ECAM messages. The crew followed the ECAM procedures and declared a PAN PAN. Upon arrival in CYYZ the crew manually lowered the landing gear and subsequently the aircraft landed uneventfully with ARFF standing by. The aircraft came to a stop on the runway and after ARFF inspection was towed to the gate due to unavailable nosewheel steering. Maintenance found a hydraulic leak in the system and a faulty PTU.
