Buddy is leaving tomorrow for Canada and ask if he needed the actual title for his car- as I recall you only need car registration and proof of insurance but that was in 2010- is it still the same?

Registration and valid insurance for Canada is all.

Proof of insurance MUST be on a Canadian approved form. Just having proof from your insurance carrier in the states is not enough. I know, I have relatives in Canada and have been crossing the border for almost 50 years.

thanks for the help guys..
btw, there is a new wrinkle for as car insurance (least says USAA Insurance) as of mid-summer Canada was accepting the insurance cards issued in the US, no longer requiring the Inter provincial card.

I read too, that Canada had dropped the requirement for US vehicles to have an Interprovincial insurance card. Vehicle insurance in Canada is a provincial matter just as it is a state matter in the US. The border officials are all federal employees and have never shown the slightest interest in my vehicle insurance. Only time I needed it was when one of the "men in Red" actually wearing his working greens, stopped me and did the standard request for, license, registration an proof of insurance. Then gave me a warning for the stop sign I had failed to see in the trees. LOL This was in the Yukon many years ago.

I have recently asked this question (needing the Canadian insurance card)to about 10 different people and got 10 different answers. And all 10 people were positive they were right

We used to carry one but along about 2008 or so, my insurance company said they were no longer needed so we stopped and now just carry the same card we always carry in the US.

Never been asked either way at the border. And, fortunetly have never had the need to show the card to a LEO or need insurance in Canada either....

If I'm driving into BC I always call my auto insurance agent first and he mails me one of those yellow Canadian auto insurance cards (or whatever it's called) with my policy info to put in my wallet. I'm not worried about customs. I'm more concerned about knowing I'm covered if I have a fender bender in a "foreign country".

Ditto to what ccchuck said regarding USAA.

We're leaving in 2 weeks and my husband finally got around to calling about the Jeep yesterday. USAA told him they no longer do the yellow cards but they are sending us something to carry with us in addition to our regular insurance card.

Now if I can just get him to call about the RV, I can concentrate on the other million things we need to do before we leave.
