Canada home in a Florida Trust

Can I include a home in Ontario in my Florida Trust and what are the tax implications? Upon our passing the Canadian home in the trust would go to my wife's two son who are Canadian citizens.

I have applied for my CPP online through the Service Canada web site. If I am going to collect SS for my 4.5 years work in the USA do I also have to go through SS in the US and apply for SS separately. I am sure the answer is yes but just checking.

I know this post series is old but I came back to it because my wife is now going to apply for CPP. I am not sure I am clear on one issue. Can she collect CPP now at 62 and have it sent to the US and then also . collect SS at 65 as my spouse. Can she receive CPP and SS at the same time.
