        The hard part will not be how to get your furniture to the US; the hard part will be getting a visa. (Any national moving company will be able to tell you what is involved with taking houshold furnishings across the border).

        There is a good website on Canada -> US employment based immigration that will help you determine if you are eligible for some kind of work visa.

        Your daughter will be able to attend school in the municipality that you live in as long as property taxes or some sort of rent is being paid. Once again - not a real big issue.

        Yes a work visa is hard to get although Canadians can get a TN visa if you have the appropriate job experience and education. (check the website I mentioned).

        If your 'love' is a U.S. Citizen, you can get a visa through marriage (MAKE SURE YOU WANT TO BE MARRIED TO THE GUY THOUGH!). Although even that can be hard if you play by the rules. As a Canadian, you can come to the US on a visitor visa for 180 days, and then get married while you are here. But be careful! If the INS thinks you have an intent to stay or if you get married too fast (ie: less than 30 or so days), they will deny your visa.

        If you don't need to work, you could always put your stuff in storage, move down with your daughter for a few months (she will be able to go to school in the city where he lives), and see how it goes...

        But I will have to tell you that 'love across a border' is usually a trail of heartache and separation...

        Hope this helps...

              "NORTH AMERICAN" is code word for White or is it a code word for "NATIVE AMERICAN"?

                The Continent we live in (including Canada) is called North America! Therefore the reference to North Americans refers to such.

                  One more thing! That first post wasnt about race whatsoever. Why would you think its code? did you not know what continent this was?

                    Furniture from Canada is very precious, you do have a case in wanting to import them.

                      Tell the INS you are a big fan of the Minnesota Wild. Name 3 prominent players and I will pick you and your daughter up in a boat on the boundary waters. ha ha.
                      Just kidding.
                      Do everything by 'the book' meaning, American INS laws. There are tons of immigration lawyers. Getting to this site is your first step.
                      You didn't say you had a SO in your post. Dont worry about the trivial things, as long as you enter the US legally there should be no problem. If you are near Minnesota you should contact Ingbor& Aronson in Minneapolis, they can give you advice, They have a good website & awesome lawyers who may be able to help you, good luck!
