Realtors cannot offer legal advice. You will need to consult Canadian law regarding real estate for that answer. Your status as a Florida resident will not impact how foreign property sales need to be handled.
Best of luck.

Sounds like a Canadian law question to me. Contact a Realtor in the area of Canada where the property is located and she may be able to refer you to a local law office.
As far as the sale in New York that was done by the husband, that would probably go under New York law and I believe they have attorneys at closing so hopefully that was done legally correct. I wouldn't know...I'm a mere FL Realtor, not a NY or Canadian or FL attorney.
Good luck on the sale of your Canadian property.
All the best,
