If you have a green card that allows you to live in the US as a permanent resident you do not need a visa to enter Canada. A Temporary Resident Visa is the name Canada gives to Visitor visas. You would enter Canada using your green card and if you are flying there you would use the passport from your home country plus your green card.

To return to the US you need to prove to them you have the right to enter the US and to remain - once again, that is your green card. It's proper name is a Permanent Resident card or Alien Registration card. When you return to the US you would use your passport and your green card if you are flying, and if you are driving the you would just use your green card. If you are travelling with a US citizen, though, they would have to have a US passport in order to be allowed back into the US.

Even if someone is returning to the US via Canada and has a green card, they are allowed to use the green card to enter Canada without requiring a visa They do not need a temporary resident visa. The green card is valid to enter Canada from any country in the world, not just the US.

If someone does not have a green card yet and is travelling to the US to get a green card when they cross into the US, then yes, they may require a Temporary Resident's visa or transit visa if their home country is one the list of countries requiring visas. :)

Here is the information from the Canadian Government which shows the countries that need a visa (temporary Resident visa) and those who are exempted from requiring a visa to enter Canada as a visitor:

Visitor Visa Exemptions

Many people do not require a visa to visit Canada. These include:

persons lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence who are in possession of their alien registration card (Green card) or can provide other evidence of permanent residence;

Also, anyone travelling to the US by plane from Canada actually goes through US customs and immigration in Canada at the airport before they enter the plane. Hope this helps :)
