Heading up to the Ignace area for the yearly Canadian trip and was wondering what the latest "cans" and "cant's " are for what you can bring in. Potatoes....no potatoes....chicken....no chicken.....eggs....no eggs...etc?

I've been across the border twice since April and I wasn't asked about anything regarding food, just alcohol and/or tobacco. However, a call to the border office wouldn't hurt to verify for sure.

Been years since we went to Canada,between the increase in camping fee's,low rate money exchange,increase license fee's and just a the hassel with paperwork,but what really pissed us off was the food restrictions,ever had a shore lunch w/o potatoes?@ the pidgeon river crossing one year they made us go back to the U.S. side and dump our goods,the ditch was loaded with bags of potatoes and fruits (oranges/apples).I see the Canadians lifted that restriction somewhat,(1) potato per person...lol.

Thanx for the link ret~

We always stopped at the grocery store in Kakabeka Falls and bought our potatoes, etc. Not a hassle at all. Thunder Bay has grocery stores as well. Another 10 bucks on top of a trip that is costing a few hundred is no big deal.

We always take canned potatoes into Canada for shore lunch.
No problems so far.

I have been going to Canada every year since 2007. Crossing in International Falls we have never been asked anything beyond Alcohol, tobacco and bait.

The 4KG of potatoes you are authorized per person according the to the website is equivalent to about 8lbs of potatoes.

Our group brings a Costco size bag of potatoes every year without issue.

Agree with above post that a shore lunch minus potatoes is just wrong.

We've also never had any issues...thou we drive across. No paper work at all. we take 6-8 guys over in 2 vehicles and that takes all of 5 minutes! And that includes one guy running in to pay the extra beer fee.

CANADA IS AWESOME! If I paid twice what I do now, I'd still return.
