Default Complicated tax question


We were a young family debating a move to Canada in a few months. We want to give it a trial run, so we're thinking that I (the wife) will move with our boys for a year (the boys and I are dual citizens; my hubby is a Canadian citizen and a US green card holder), while my husband will continue to live in the U.S. and come to Canada for the weekends.

How would taxes work if we are a married couple where I, the stay at home wife with no income, live in Canada, whereas my sole breadwinner hubby lives in the U.S.? We have two kids who would be in kindergarten in September (so I assuming that means we'll have to file canadian taxes if we want them to go to Canadian schools)...
