I recently sent the CBSA (Canadian border agency) an e-mail asking whether one would get two or just one entry stamp if first entering Canada by air, then going to the US by land for two days and then returning to Canada by land.
To my big surprise, I got the following Reply (from CBSA-ASFC.CONTACT@cbsa-asfc.gc.ca):
As a matter of procedure, passports are not normally stamped
Is this really true (whether at airports or land borders)? I've seen lots of Canadian passport stamps online (which do seem to vary in look depending on the port of entry). Were all of these specifically requested, or what?
If it matters, I'm a visa-free EU national. To clarify, I would not find it negative - quite the opposite, if CBSA's info were to be accurate.
Anyone with recent experience?
