Yes, they will want to know your return plans. They will likely ask how long you are staying in Canada, where you are staying, who you are going to see and how much money do you have for your trip.

The same thing happens when we visit the US.

In addition to which, you will need to have the proper documentation to enter the country:

I don't know the exchange policy on either Amtrack (not really recommended) or Greyhound. Used to be open tickets but with the e-tickets switch of all transportation companies some have put the brakes on that priviledge and charge an extra to re-issue your return or simply don't offer that option at all and will ask you to pay a complete new return ticket if you don't stick with your initial plans.

So you should look at the websites of both companies, or even contact them by e-mail if you want to know their exact policies.

I would suspect that CBSA officers will want to know when you are leaving Canada, and be able to show proof.
