Taking your Son to Canada?

Recommended Posts

fishlips

I am taking my son to Canada this summer for the 2nd time (he's 11). Very rewarding and lots of fun. I just wanted to remind the Dad's out there that if they do plan on going to Canada with their son, they have to have a certified letter signed by a notary public and Mom stating the dates and location for the trip.
After waiting 1 to 2 hours in line at the Canada border - the last thing you want is an unexpected roadblock like this....

Hi, I will be going to Canada this summer and have never been out of thecountry before. What info do I need to have with me? I'm 21 if that makes any difference. Thanks

I've been to Canada several times. I've never had the horror stories you here about having your car stripped from top to bottom and left for you to put back together, or the ever dreaded "human" strip search. If you have nothing to hide and don't act weird, you have no problem. I've heard it's a good idea to bring your birth certificate. We went last year in June and just brought our driver license. Between 6 of us, nobody was hassled or even asked for I.D. If you have any felony arrests or DUIs, you could have a problem. Really, any U.S. criminal record could easily cause you a one way ticket NOT into Canada (if that makes sense). If in doubt, check with the lodge you are headed to. If you aren't staying at a lodge, check with the province you will be in for entry info. It's always better to check ahead than be sorry, sad, and out of money by being denied entry. Good luck and good fishing!

You need to have a valid (not expired) drivers license to get into Canada. I always bring a certified copy of my birth certificate, although its not required.
*Check before leaving to be sure.
To clarify my post above: if you are a guardian bringing a minor into Canada, you need to have a certified/notarized letter stating where you are going and the dates. It needs to be signed in the presence of a notary public by the legal Mother (& father if he's not going) of the child. This is what I was told last year - just be aware of this before you leave.

Is this for real? I am planning on bringing my daughter for the first time this summer.(She will be 16 months at the time) I have to get a notarized statement even if both parents are with? Copy of Birth Certificate won't do? Has anyone else heard this?
