Hi All,

I’m curious if anyone on here has experience driving to Alaska thru Canada while the border is closed.

Canada currently allows it if you’re going to school, a permanent residence, or a job. The last option is what I’m wondering about specifically. I’m thinking about going wwoofing up there and I’m wondering if some sort of documentation of that intent would fly as a “job.”

Thanks

What month you thinking about? If you time it with cannery work you could probably get an actual job offer (then just don’t work)

Hey, where in Canada are you starting ? :) I'm in NB and looking to find someone to travel with in Canada
Hi there,

My idea to travel north didn’t really develop anymore. I’ll be starting to work in Glacier National Park in a few weeks here, and will be going thru Waterton, Alberta pretty often to access my corner of the park. When / if the border goes back to normal I hope to hang out in Waterton and the Canadian Rockies a lot. Let me know if you are in the area.

best of luck

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$40.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $40.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $40.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $40.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
