Some Canadian ports of entry are still stamping passports, but to go fully electronic soon
 
Today,  the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC) official website indicates that the border officers will stamp entry dates on an individual’s passport upon arriving in the country. This has brought confusion among travellers, especially after the Canadian government’s being vocal about abandoning several manual procedures in all Canadian ports of entry as it transitions to being fully automated.

Though several ports of entries in the country still practice manual passport stamping, the IRCC said that it would cease to exist in the months to come.  All ports of entry in the country will gradually adapt as all entries and exits nationwide will be tracked, scrutinised, and processed by a sophisticated electronic technology.
 
In the interim, since the government does not have a definitive list of particular ports of entry that still adhere to manual passport stamping, and also to avoid further delay, all travellers are advised to bring printed copies of their boarding passes to prove their entry into and departure from Canada.
