Crossing into Canada

I was told that there is some special Vehicle Insurance Card needed for Canada. Others have told me that a typical Insurance card is fine. Anybody crossed recently and what did you find.

We get a certificate from State Farm indicating that we are covered in Canada. It's about the size of a 3X5 index card. Not all agents are aware of this - there was a recent thread here or on another forum about this subject. Ask your agent for the verification. It should be no big deal to get it.

Same here, my State Farm agent provides me a certificate of insurance for Canada.

Think my SF agent called it an international card. We were never asked for any proof of insurance while crossing borders.

I recently crossed into Canada. I called Progressive and they faxed a temporary card to my CG, and mailed a permanent one to the Stick House. It let's the Canadian officials know you are insured, should you need to let them know. Hopefully not.

Ditto. Unlike Mexico, Canada recognizes U.S.A. insurance companies coverage. The coverage card for Canada is free, just restating that your insurance is valid in Canada.

You will most likely not be asked for insurance verification at the border. It would come into play if you are involved in an accident in Canada. I've never been asked for insurance documentation when entering Canada.
