does a Canadian citizen with permanent residency in U.S. need a passport to fly within Canada?
I live in Buffalo, N.Y. but I am still a Cdn citizen. I want to drive to Toronto for a flight to Nova Scotia...will I require a Cdn Passport or is my permanent residency card and birth certificate enough to do this?

NO. But having it with you is a good idea. Proof positive of your identity, and nationality. Jim B. Toronto.
For boarder crossing you will just need your Green Card. Read: Permanent residents of the United States may travel to Canada from the United States or Saint-Pierre and Miquelon without passports. http://cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publications/pub/bsf5023-eng.html#s2x4 .. For domestic flight travel within Canada you will need one piece of government issued photographic ID or two pieces of government issued ID without picture that show your name. You can show Green Card or Driver's License. http://www.passengerprotect.gc.ca/identity.html ..
You will require a Canadian passport. Your permanent resident credentials are only good in the US. They don't cut any ice in Canada. And a birth certificate doesn't work when it comes to crossing borders because it isn't photo ID and could belong to anyone.
