I have an upcoming fishing trip planned to Rivers Inlet, British Columbia outside of Vancouver.  This is a seven day trip from Miami to Vancouver and through Customs of course.  My question to anyone out there is this:  What do I need to do as far as bringing my narcotic pain meds into Canada with me?  I have read so much mularkey that it's driving me nuts.  Keep them in the original bottles, bring the actual precription with you, so many other ridiculous suggestions.  All Im looking to do is transport my daily medications with me.  Like anything else, only this is medication and it's narcotics. I just want to be sure of what I'm doing.  The trip is not until August but I would love to know what the border deal is?

Thanks tio anyone with the answers.

Thanks Goat

I was looking at that site and it seems as though all of the information on that site is geared towards ciizens of Canada travelling outside of Canada.   It does mention bringing scripts back INTO Canada from foriegn countries but again, it looks like they are referring to citizens of Canada.  Please correct me if Im wrong and Im missing something because I have 9 prescription meds that I take daily with 2 of those 9 being narcotics.  I just want to make sure that Im kosher, i you will......Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again Goat..
