    Canada

    What do you need to get into Canada? I thought you needed a passport, but my friend is telling me you don't need that until June 1st. Birth certificate?

    A bottle of Moosehead and a Canadian Flag backpack.







    Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader....
    I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled....
    and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
    although I'm certain they're really really nice.

    I have a Prime Minister, not a president.
    I speak English and French, not American.
    And I pronounce it 'about', not 'a boot'.

    I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack.
    I believe in peace keeping, not policing,
    diversity, not assimilation,
    and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
    A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
    and it is pronounced 'zed' not 'zee', 'zed' !!!!

    Canada is the second largest landmass!
    The first nation of hockey!
    and the best part of North America

    My name is Joe!!
    And I am Canadian!!!

    So, if you have a passport take it---it's easier to carry than a birth certificate (and I have no idea if a birth certificate will work or not.) If you don't have a passport, get one. They are easy to do, last for (IIRC) ten years and will serve you well as you decide to travel over the years to various countries.

    Passports are also accepted as valid identification of your ability to work in the U.S. Even if you 'look, seem or appear' to be 'American', major corporations cover their bases and require you to prove that you are eligible to work in this country. A U.S. paseport is one way to do that. It's a very valuable document and takes very little effort to obtain.

    Re: Canada

    You need proof of citizenship, which is highly flexible and not precise. A birth certificate, DL or some other combination of documents might do the trick. Read: it is up to the ill-tempered official making the decision. Get a passport.

    For what it's worth, I've generally found it is easier to get into Canada than to get back into the US.

    Hmm. I hear now that you don't need a passport if you are driving in, so a birth certificate will suffice. I have my passport, but a few of my friends don't and we might be driving up next weekend.

    Here's the official scoop: http://travel.state.gov/travel/cbpmc/cbpmc_2223.html

    On June 1, 2009, the U.S. government will implement the full requirements of the land and sea phase of WHTI. The proposed rules require most U.S. citizens entering the United States at sea or land ports of entry to have a passport, passport card, or other travel document approved by the Department of Homeland Security.

    Re: Canada

    I applied and received a passport and passport card. The difference is that a passport (book) is valid for all travel (air, sea and land), whereas a passport card is only good for land and sea travel to Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. Now to apply for a passport and/or passport card you will need your birth certificate or a copy of it (it will be returned).

    You'd also have to have a government-issued photo ID, a driver's license.

    CURRENTLY:
    All U.S. citizens must show proof of identity and proof of U.S. citizenship when entering the United States from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the countries of the Caribbean by land or sea.

    Acceptable documents include: U.S. Passport Book, U.S. Passport Card, or other document approved by the Department of Homeland Security.

    U.S. citizens who do not have a single document verifying identity and citizenship must present both an identification and citizenship document; for example, a driver’s license and a copy of a birth certificate or naturalization certificate.

    I might be going to Canada in the next week. Are you planning on visiting Windsor, Norris?
