From the OO's tone, I think it's fair to say she wants neither a driver's license or a passport. Instead, she has chosen not to travel.

C'est la vie.

Although it is not the central question, I think it is worth remembering that before traveling to any country, one should always check the consulate (even by the web) of the country to be visited.
This month an acquaintance was wondering to come for Carnival in Brazil, but had not informed about the visa.
In these pages there is always information of the necessary vaccines, necessary procedures, visa fees, etc.
Even this type of information requested is always more reliable in consulates.

The place you check is at the US Department of State where the information is aggregated:
https://travel.state.gov/content/pas...n/country.html

There aren't many destinations in the world left where you have to make a physical trip to a consulate to obtain a tourist visa or a short business trip. 30 years ago, there were a heck of a lot more.

Yes, you need a passport or passport card to go from the U.S. to Canada. I've been twice in the last three years.

OP doesn't have a passport and doesn't have a driver's license. Perhaps no valid government issued ID?

OP, if you are a US citizen, just get yourself a state issued ID card and a passport. If you are a LAPR, get your state issued ID card and take your green card and a copy of your legal immigration documents. It wouldn't hurt to carry your passport from your country of origin, that is going to have an official government stamp that you are LAPR. If you are an undocumented alien, you aren't getting back into the USA.

Some states have enhanced non-driver's ID cards which can be used to cross over land borders. But for flying one needs a valid passport.
