I think a proper boat should have a flag, so I will put one up. Just a basic question, as being so close to the boarder.

The courtesy flag is hoisted AFTER you clear customs and immigration. You should show the flag of the country of registry of your vessel on the stern. You probably will not get into Canadian waters.
