Do I need a passport to travel on domestic flights within Canada?

To take a domestic flight in Canada, you should have:

  • a valid passport (or Embassy issued Emergency Travel Document) or
  • a valid piece of Canadian government-issued photo identification that shows the holder's name, date of birth and gender (e.g. Canadian permanent-resident card, Canadian driver's license).

Check with the Canadian authorities or your airline for full requirements.
