Hi,!Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but,I've a question for those who travel into Canada. Is there a limit to how much food, beverage, or fuel, that you can bring accross the line? I've heard that there were certain restrictions. Thanks.... CROW :

Never had a problem going into Canada its getting back where you will have the problem. NO meats,fruit,plants or animals that didn't cross with you. In 08 we have to have a passport. "007"

We went to Ottawa in August. At the border going to Ca, we were asked where we were going and why. The looked at out driver license and asked if we had any guns or booze. (we had dropped off the guns at a relative in Syracus). They sent us on our way.
Comming back they guy stood by the open door, did not look at anything, saw our silly dog, asked where we had been and why and sent us on our way. And we were prepared for all the rules. go figure !
If you go to Canada.org you will find border entry regs.
I still would not tempt fate by being in violation, esspecially with guns, they can confiscate and keep your rig.

Yes there are restrictions, but they aren't onerous in most cases.

First of all you cannot bring in hand guns or ammunition and personal defence products such as pepper sprays or tear gas sprays. Don't even ask. Long guns may be brought in for sporting purposes but a special permit is required and a fee charged. There is a limit on the quantity of booze and cigarettes, generally 1 liter per adult person onboard.
At times there may be restrictions on what foods can cross the border in either direction - depends on the latest "scare". In recent times there have been restrictions on meats (eg. "mad cow" beef), various fruits, plants and firewood (insects and diseases), etc. Restrictions may vary by province and even individual border crossing sites, so check ahead.

Check out Canadian Travel for details and official information.

Beginning Jan 1, 2008, you will need a passport to return to the US from Canada. Canada will probably then require you to show your US passport at entry too, since they don't want to be stuck with you if you can't go back home!

We went to Canada last year and what has been said I found the same. We went to Mitchells Bay and stayed for five days. The only problem I had was the country looked the same every where I went and I got lost a lot.

IMO this should be in the Canada Section where we who have all the relevant sites bookmarked hang out.

Officially Canadian Border Services Agency page to answer many of the questions above.

CBSA WebPage of many links for all the other questions you may have.

T'ain't so to say harder to come back. Canada Customs can enforce just as picky regulations as the U.S., any day of the week.

& of course, I firmly believe that it is part of the travel experience to shop while on the road. 1) Products are different and worth trying
2) Local People have lots to offer in the way of where to go, what to see, and
3) You will do best if you buy at truly local places such as the Charlottetown Farmers Market and visit a really local restaurant now and again.

We journied to Canada last summer. No problems entering Canada. The food police were active on our way back into the States (crossed back & forth from Montana). Two women agents confiscated all our fruit, vegies, & even our barbecued brisket that we had cooked at home in Texas. They had a great lunch.

We may have to petition both Governments, Magoo. Seems these guards need a wage increase... ...just kidding... for the most part both security agencies are doing a good job....Brad
