Important Travel Documents

When traveling to Ontario from the States, it’s imperative to remember to bring the important travel documents with you as you prepare for a fishing trip or other stay in Canada. Here’s a list of the documents and papers you shouldn’t forget:

Travel Documents

Atlas   

Birth Certificate

Cash   

Credit Cards (remember to tell your credit card company you’re traveling out of country so they don’t put a security lock on your cards)

Fishing License

Outdoor Card

Hunter’s Safety Card

Hunting License

Maps  

Parent Permission Letter 

Passport          

Reservation Confirmation  

Traveler’s Checks

Insurance Card

Vehicle Registration

Important Phone Numbers (insurance, doctor, auto repair, roadside assistance, emergency contact)

Medical ID Tags

Important Medical Documents

Driver’s License

Road Side Assistance Info

Fishing and Hunting Regulations

Applicable Warranty information for vehicle and other equipment

While this may seem like overkill when it comes to bringing paperwork for an Ontario walleye trip, you’ll need many of these documents for crossing the border and for making sure your trip runs smoothly. Better to be prepared than faced with an emergency and no way of making contact with those who can help.
