Hi, I own a legal green card and am a permanent resident of the US. I recently applied for citizenship for the US, and sent in my green card, signed some papers, etc a few months ago. It's been months and I still haven't received any of my stuff back. I was planning on visiting Canada next week but I learned that you have to have a green card to get across the border. I do have a green card, it's just not physically with me I have my passport. What do I specifically need getting in and out of Canada? Is there anything that I can do? Any exceptions? Thanks.

I guess if through your research you've found you need a green card to return to the USA after a visit to Canada then your trip to Canada will have to be postponed until such time as your green card is returned,although i would have thought your American passport and a drivers license would have sufficed as id for crossing the border.
When you received your green card was there no other supporting documentation that came with it?
