I'm a citizen of Uzbekistan as well as a Permanent Resident of the US. I'm planning to travel to Canada for a short vacation but not sure if I need a tourist visa.

I am having a hard time trying to get in touch with Canadian consulate in NY since it doesn't respond visa inquires over the phone. I don't want to be stuck at the airport or sent back to the US if the visa is required.

According to Find out if you need a visa, citizens of Uzbekistan normally need need a visa to visit Canada.

However, I found a page on the Help Centre which says:

As a U.S. Green Card holder, you do not need a temporary resident visa to travel to Canada. At the Canadian border, you will need to present your valid passport and Green Card.

Interesting to note that Canadian permanent residents on the other hand do need visas to visit the US –  Blackbird57 Jun 18 at 19:24

According to the answer on another question about visiting Canada, the Government of Canada provides a short questionnaire that helps you figuring if you need a visa and how long you are allowed to stay.

When filling the questionnaire with the information you provided, I could find that you are allowed to stay temporarily in Canada to visit without a visa. You can fill it yourself to have the result depending on your exact situation. But most likely, as a US resident, you are allowed to enter Canada without a visa.

Would the downvoter be kind enough to explain its vote? –  Vince Jun 18 at 21:06

U.S. permanent residents don't need a visa to visit Canada.

@Vince: It directly answers the question. What are you talking about? –  user102008 Jun 18 at 21:19

@user102008 It does answer the question but a reference helps. –  Karlson Jun 19 at 2:55
    
Yup sorry that is a formatted message. As Karlson said, directly answering a question and writing a sourced and helpful answer are two different things. In particular, are you sure there is no exception to US residents to be allowed in Canada? –  Vince Jun 19 at 5:33
