I would call the Canadian side of the border and ask. My daughter is an ag inspector for US Customs and Border Protection, on the Canadian border, and this is her area...I know coming INTO the US many types of food, IF prepared, is ok. For instance, an orange..if its peeled you can bring it in. if it isnt, you cant. I know rice is a total NO. not sure if its different kinds or what..just know she destroys a LOT of rice..lol.
But, our rules coming INTO the US differ from those going into Canada, so its best to check with them, or maybe google something like "can i take _________ across the border into Canada" the problem with googling is, sometimes things change day to day...so if you want to be sure, call...

A nice veggie soup would work; you could put green beens, cabbage and tomatoes in it; or bring the crockpot and take the things out of the package when you get where you're going! (no spillage ACK).

It's been over 20 years since my last border crossing and the rules are always changing. Have fun visiting!!!

Here's a link I found that might help:

Click on the 'Products allowed into Canada from the United States' which is in the second paragraph

Looking for some very specific food help. We are driving up to Canada next week to visit some very distant relatives. There will be seven of us traveling so I want to bring some food. We can't bring meat unless it is in the original packaging.

Do any of you know of some type of casserole or crockpot meal that we could bring up cold or frozen, bring the meat separately, and just take it out of the packaging and add it when we get there? I want to bring a main because I have a feeling some of the people there are vegetarian and will not have food we will eat (no one in my house likes beans or soy).

It will be a five-hour drive each way, so cold or frozen would be the best way to transport. We are leaving at 5am so there will be plenty of time to heat it up by 4 or 5 for early dinner.

As far as I can tell, chicken and eggs are a no for the border crossing.

Thanks.
