Canadian Laws - What to EXPECT
Visitors to Canada and Canadian laws
Arriving in Canada
Border services officers are at the ports of entry to ensure that people entering Canada respect Canadian laws. They are authorized to examine people and goods entering Canada to determine their admissibility. Their goal is to facilitate the entry of legitimate travellers and goods as quickly as possible.
When you enter Canada, a border services officer may ask to see your passport and a valid visa (if you are arriving from a country from which one is required). If you are a U.S. citizen, you do not need a passport to enter Canada; however, you should carry proof of your citizenship such as a birth certificate, a certificate of citizenship or naturalization or a Certificate of Indian Status, as well as a photo ID.(Now the WHTI requires that U.S. citizens have a passport to return home.)
If you are a permanent resident of the United States, you must bring your permanent resident card (i.e. green card) with you. For more information on admissibility into Canada, read the fact sheet called Managing Access to Canada.
All travellers, including U.S. citizens, are encouraged to visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Web site at Home Land Security for information on the U.S. Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative and its traveller requirements to enter or return to the United States.
