Whether or not you are able to travel to another country while you are on probation depends upon what the terms are with respect to the written probation you are on. As such, you need to carefully read your probation order to see if you can travel to Canada.

If you believe you can, I suggest that you call and write your probation officer of your intended trip to Canada. Keep a copy of your letter for future use and need.
