June 1 , 2009 begins the requirement to have an official ID card for those travelling back and forth to Canada , Mexico, Caribbean, and Bermuds. Since we travel back and forth to Frederickton NB, we have applied for the passcards. (My wife wanted something that could just be kept in a vehicle rather than our passports.
We will be paying an extra 20 bucks each for the passcards, but if you dont have either a passport or passcard, its a good saving for routine travelers across the borders of North AMerica. I guess its good in Nun ivuit too. (Itll cost you 45 bucks if you dont have a passport book and you cant enter by plane for these countries)
45 bucks v 100 bucks, and its quicker to get .
A passport is a pain to keep moving about and these are wallet or glove box carrier sizes.
