Default Bad Info - No you don't need a passport

The last time I took my son into Canada a few years ago, I needed a passport but he just needed a birth certificate.

I'm going to call the border agent to verify, but in the meantime has anyone heard anything on this?

Thanks
I just crossed the border at Pigeon River on Monday (04-25-16). I had my 5 year old daughter with me. I provided a birth certificate only. That's it!

They didn't even ask for the permission letter from Michelle, but it's still a good idea to have one. And no, it does not need to be certified as I read in another post.

Thanks for that info. I sent out for passports for both kids just to be done with it, but from what I can tell our post office is just misinformed.

Yes they were wrong. My wife is form Ontario so we have crossed many times. For land travel the cheapest option is the passport card and it last longer than a regular passport.
