Passport Required to Enter and Exit Canada: A valid U.S. passport, passport card, or NEXUS card is required for U.S. citizens entering Canada.
For temporary visits to Canada for less than 180 days, a visa is not required for U.S. citizens.
If a U.S. citizen traveling to Canada does not have a passport, passport card, or approved alternate document such as a NEXUS card, they must show a government-issued photo ID (e.g. Driver's License) and proof of U.S. citizenship such as a U.S. birth certificate, naturalization certificate, or expired U.S. passport.
Visit the US State Department Website for full details on passport and travel requirements.
