OP has a reasonable question, guys. Depending on the method you use to enter he country, you don't need a passport. For instance, EDLs (Enhanced drivers licenses) are sufficient for entry to Canada, along with several other forms of ID that aren't actually passports.

Wow simple question doesn't require rude response. Beside you don't need a passport to drive to Canada.

You don't need your passport to drive to Canada...?

Lol EY repping the high IQ

I guarantee there's at least one bozo at D who thinks you can drive into Canada without a passport

S&2 .... that was the best response/question!!! Hhahahaha

OP - Stop embarrassing yourself and the IQ of our firm. This is what happens when you live in a cave!

Not everyone travels outside of the US. In fact, I'm one of few international travelers in my group so I'm not surprised OP is naive (don't mean it in a bad way).

Lazard Hello I need some advice. Basically, I am a newbie to IB and I got a first phone interview for an IB Analyst position. It went great and I could feel it. They said there would a super-day. I would like to well prepare for this super day given my background is not finance. Where should I find appropriate materials to study? I may or may not be invited to a super day but I would rather be well prepared. Thanks!
