When crossing the border, a current passport is required for all travelers. If you are crossing the border with minors, be sure to have notarized travel permission letters from their parents or legal guardians. If you are traveling solo with your children, be sure to bring a note of permission from the other parent. United States citizens under the age of 16 may use their birth certificate or naturalization certificate for travel between the United States and Canada.
