Do I need a passport if I am driving into Canada yet?

No. Next year.

You need an ID and birth certificate.

Canada only requires a DL for identification. You need the birth certificate to enter the US. A passport will serve as a single ID.

At this time you'll have more trouble getting back into the states than into Canada but neither requires a passport yet. Your best bet is to have a valid government ID and/or certified copy of your birth certificate. Both is best.

We never had our births cert last year. Did something change or is it just a good thing to do?

I'm probably going to jinx myself . . . we always have our driver's licenses and birth certificates for all of us ready and in order for the agent on both sides of the border. I haven't been pulled over for years. We'll have to get the passports over the winter.

Yes something did change. Before Jan. of this year you could have declared your citizenship by filling out a form while providing an I.D. card (drivers license)and no physical evidence of where you where born. That is no longer the the case.

A passport is still NOT required to drive across the border, but a certified copy of your birth certificate is for all members of your group regardless of age.(certified means one with a raised stamp mark on it.)

It is a simple enough change, but has been complicated by mis-information. The passport reguirment which is now scheduled for next year has been delayed two or three times in the past.

I have my passport and will definitely take it along but I have a question? So what happens if you leave the USA and enter into Canada and then try to return to the USA with no certified copy of your birth certificate? They send you back to Canada for another weeks worth of fishing?

I think the only people that need a certified copy of their birth certificate are minors who don't have a picture id...I might be wrong, but I don't remember having to bring one along myself. I do remember about 5 years ago, I forgot my son's birth certificate at home and the US Customs Agent gave me a really hard time, but ultimately let us through.

If you have a passport, you definitely don't need the birth certificate.

*EDIT* Ooops, didn't see that there was a change since Jan. Bring your passport and you have nothing to worry about.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
