No, but you will need your birth certificate on top of your driver's license

Canadian citizens will not require a passport to enter the United States at land and marine ports of entry until June 1, 2009 at the earliest.

However, as of January 31, 2008, if you travel to the United States by land or water, a United States law will require you to present:

* a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's licence
AND a birth certificate or a citizenship card;
OR
* for youth under 18, a birth certificate;
OR
* a valid passport.
