Border crossings into Canada are generally not a problem with rental cars. 
I did it just last year, in fact. Because of the relatively high cost of 
flights into Vancouver, BC, if the conference were there I'd probably fly to 
Seattle, rent a car, and drive to Vancouver.

That said, one potential problem with a Canadian conference would be that 
passports are required to go there, and I wonder how many in our group do 
not hold passports.
