What documentation is required to cross into Canada?
Canadian law requires that you show proof of citizenship and identity when crossing the border. For U.S. citizens, a valid passport book, a passport card, or a NEXUS card are sufficient to satisfy the requirement. Children under the age of 16 should have proof of identity and citizenship, like an original birth certificate or citizenship card.
The Canadian border patrol may also ask for proof of insurance if you’re driving in Canada. It’s also a good idea to have proof of insurance in case you get pulled over or get into an accident during your visit.
Make sure you have a valid vehicle registration before driving in Canada. Sometimes border agents will ask for your registration to make sure you aren’t driving a stolen vehicle.
