I'm going to be on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls next week.  I confirmed I can operator there as long as I have a copy of my FCC license and observe their frequency bands.  Since I'll be in Ontario, am I correct that I give my call sign as <callsign>\VE3?

Thanks

Here's an information page from Canada...

Canada - United States Reciprocal Operating Agreement

LINK: https://www.rac.ca/en/amateur-radio/regulatory/operating-in-canada/canada-usa.php

and posted towards the bottom...

"There is no need for paperwork or other formalities when exchanging visits between Canada and the United States. Under the terms of the agreement, the visitor must identify using his or her call sign followed by a call area suffix, e.g. VE3FRV/W9 or N9CFX/VE3."

Don't get too wet from the falls!
