Visa not required for stay less than 180 days.
Passport not required if you have a copy of your birth certificate and a valid drivers license with a picture ID.

Thought the VISA requirement was bogus for a vacation or personal visit. On the other hand, for a business requirement, I have gotten VISAs (up to 3-yr) when entering Canada with proper paperwork. Border Agent can initiate a work VISA for up to 3-yrs per NAFTA treaty.

I guess further explanation is required; this GTG is organized by the Ontario Crossfire Owners Club, Niagara Falls lies in the South Ontario region and this area is the home of the Southern Ontario Crossfire Owners group, hence the joke that passports and visas are required. Get it now?
