Subject: Re: Passports for Canada?

I found this info on the net and believe it is up-to-date although I definitely agree that entering Canada with a passport is much easier.

Unless things have changed recently?

A US citizen will be required by the Government of Canada to prove that he/she is a citizen of the US. This proof may be a birth record, baptismal record, passport, Certificate of Citizenship, or Certificate of Naturalization. Often, native born US citizens will be allowed to enter Canada with just another photo identification document, like a drivers license, because the officer believes an oral declaration of US citizenship. A voter registration is NOT proof of US citizenship for legal reasons too lengthy to be of concern. Do not be shocked when an immigration officer tells you that after you present that document.
