Default Activating an IEC WH Visa by driving/train into Canada

Hi, sorry if its been asked before but I can't see it anywhere...

I was wondering if anyone has experience activating their working holiday visa crossing into Canada by car or train from the USA?

My plan was to drive or train it from Seattle into Vancouver, but I was wondering if border control have are able to process me the same way as at an airport?

If anyone has any idea or tips it would be appreciated.

Cheers.

I don't believe there are any issues with this, loads of people have done this. Only thing I think worth checking is if you're renting a car, whether the rental company will allow you take it into Canada.

I've activated a work permit via taking the train into Vancouver and didn't have a problem, I'd actually recommend it if you manage to get a seat on the western side as it can be a pretty ride.

It's a slow as he'll ride though, the coach is quicker.
