Important Update: New Transport Canada domestic travel ID requirements

As of June 18, 2007, all travellers aged 12 and over will be required to present at the gate, during boarding, one piece of valid government issued photo ID showing their name, date of birth, and gender. If a valid government issued photo ID is not available, then two pieces of valid government issued non-photo ID will be required, one of which must show their name, date of birth and gender.
