Crossing the Canadian border with a truck question.

Have not crossed the border with our trucks. Aside from IRP, are there any other things I need to make sure to do, or not do, or permits or anything to have to run into Canada?

Thanks

You will need:
SCAC CODE - Standard Carrier Alpha Code - identifies your company - secure.nmfta.org.Welcome.aspx (application and renewal site) for both u.s. and canada
PARS NUMBERS - bar coded consecutive numbers used to identify and announce your shipment u.s. to canada
PAPS NUMBERS - Same as above but for canada to u.s.
ACE/ACI - identifies and announces your tractor, trailer and your shipment for pre clearance - https://www.emanifest.ca (canada) - https://www.emanifest.ca/aci - application website for u.s. to canada
A valid passport

Also a drunk driving is a felony in Canada..EVER..if you have any other felonies or some misdemeanors..you will be turned around and sent back to the US..and questions if you have any of those contact the local consulate before you leave home...all others is pretty well covered by Nancy..ohhh and leave your gun and animal at home.. if this is going to be a constant thing going into Canada.. you can get a fast pass card that clears you for a speedier crossing...
