Financing hell

My friends bought a new car in Canada, moved to the States, and just discovered that they violated their financing agreement by taking the car abroad for over 30 days. Nissan Canada's financing people say they have a month to pay the whole car off--$18,000--or it gets repossessed and their credit is ruined. They don't have that kind of money. What would you do?

RRSP Contribution Timing

Let's say Jack is in his 20s and in March 2011 he gets his first ever paycheque of $1000. He wants to put $100 into an RRSP account. When can he make this first deposit? Is it right away in March 2011, the first day in January 2012, or in April 2012 after he finally gets all his tax forms and files his taxes, getting a notice of assessment that states his contribution limit?

Where to buy harp strings in Canada

My wife has a 44-string Venus harp. I think it's the Cherub model. The Venus website suggests a website to order from, but ordering online from a US retailer adds prohibitive shipping (and brokerage) costs, so I really need a Canadian retailer. Where can I buy harp strings near Niagara, or online? I'm willing to drive to Toronto if I have to, but would prefer to order them online. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Can I move to Canada if my boyfriend is offered a job there?

My boyfriend was recently laid-off from his job in a competitive industry where companies are concentrated in certain areas -- he can't find another job in the industry just anywhere. He is looking for a new job in the industry. We (both US citizens) plan to go together to whatever place he finds a job, and there are a good number of opportunities in Canada (relatively speaking), so we are trying to decide if he should apply for jobs there. If he were hired by a Canadian company, would I be able to move with him there, and work after a certain amount of time? [more inside]
