A client museum has conducted a nationwide search for
conservation/collections care interns (one 3-month, one 15-month).
The only candidates that are both qualified and available are from
Canada. In checking with the US Immigrations and Naturalization
Service, the H-1B and similar visas all have been given out for the
year. NAFTA allows easier entry into the US for Canadians, but only
in specific categories. As would be expected, neither museums nor
conservation are listed.

Has anyone had success in bringing Canadians to work short-term in
US museums?  Is it possible to approach the internships (they carry
a stipend) from an educational angle? Any assistance would be
