Are there any rules around flying near the US-Canadian border?

I am planning on flying my  P3P around the Niagara river on the US side and am wondering if there are any rules or regulations on what I can do while flying and if I can even fly at all

I live within site of the Canadian border, if I wanted to I could violate Canadian airspace within about 10 minutes, including set up time.  I deliberately don't though because I have no idea what the law consists of in terms of flying across an international border, I assume the Canadians would have to be informed, but I don't know the procedure or who to talk to.  Likewise the US might be interested once it flies home, and again I don't know who to talk to.  If I tried the Border patrol would be on me in minutes I'm sure, this particular stretch of border is heavily patrolled by both sides.  Then you have the new insane Canadian drone laws to deal with, they wouldn't be able to get me directly as I am not in their territory, but US law enforcement works closely with them so I really don't know what would happen.
