If you are traveling to EGLX from outside of Canada, please note that you must have a passport. Passports generally take between 1-4 weeks to arrive, so make sure not to procrastinate!
You can apply for a passport at your local post office. In the United States, passports cost $135 USD for those 16+ (and $110 USD to renew) or $105 USD for those under 16.
One alternative for U.S. attendees is an enhanced driver’s license. This is cheaper than a passport and quicker to obtain – it’s an easier alternative to a passport for those mainly traveling between the U.S. and Canada.

Please note that as of June 1, 2009, visitors to Canada from the U.S. will be required to show:
1) If you are crossing the border by land or sea: a valid U.S. passport, a U.S. passport card, OR an enhanced driver’s license.
2) If you are flying: a valid U.S. passport ONLY.
