Default Do I need a ESTA visa waiver for Canada?

Off to Canada on saturday and had a bit of a panic when I saw a mate filling out a ESTA visa waiver for his trip to the US. Have checked a couple of sites who seem to imply I'm ok and I don't need to do anything before I leave, and just fill in the usual green and white cards on the plane. Anyone who has been to Canada recently confirm this is in the case?

Are you flying directly to Canada? If so, no ESTA required.

If you are changing flights in the US then you will need ESTA.

Yep from Gatwick to Vancouver and back again.

There's no green card for Canada - just a customs form if I remember rightly
