I'd guess if there was a problem she would be forced to leave the country immediately......kicked off the U.S. Ship

What province Kuki? And yes, she would be deported. They would put out the order as stated by Paul until you could move her back up here.

In Canada (I may qualify that a bit and say Ontario) they still can't force someone into a facility. The law is such that no matter what medical treatment you may need, you cannot force it. In your mother's case, it would actually have to be taken to court and a court order issued before anything could be done. However if she/he is a clear danger to themselves or others, there is a 72 hour hold that will have the person committed to hospital. But then they need a court order.
