Required Documents

Before leaving for the airport, make sure to have all the proper identification and travel documents required by law. If you do not, you will not be allowed to board the aircraft.

In accordance with government regulations, Air Inuit must check identification for all passengers who appear to be 18 years of age or older.

For travellers under 18, it is still suggested (but not mandatory) to have identification documents, such as an original birth certificate.

Please note that the name on the ID must match the name on your boarding pass. Any difference may result in being denied clearance to board.

One of the following must be presented before boarding:

  • One (1) piece of valid government-issued photo ID with your name, date of birth and gender or;
  • Two (2) pieces of valid government-issued ID without photo, with at least one of them indicating your name, date of birth and gender.

Examples of valid government-issued identification documents:

  • Passport
  • Citizenship Card
  • Permanent Resident Card
  • Driver’s Licence
  • Provincial Healthcare Card
  • Provincial or Territorial Government Identification Card (GIC)
  • Birth Certificate

Visit Transport Canada for a complete list of identification documents accepted for air travel within Canada.
