800 service in Canada & US

I'm working on a project to reduce the phone charges for a government
organization. They want one 800 number that works in both the US and
Canada. Currently, they use AT&T readyline service to a bunch of POTS
numbers (expensive). They have T-1's for FTS 2000, but have been told
that the Canada calls 1) couldn't come in on the FTS 2000 T-1's
                      2) can't come in readyline if the US traffic
                      comes in on the T-1.
I know that there's no technical reason why this can't be done. It
SHOULD be done, it'll save a fortune. Anybody from AT&T know about

1. Service to call US 800 #'s from Canada

Is there a service that I can use that allows me (in Canada) to call a toll
# in the US and then get tied into a line that lets me call an 800 number
that can not be normally dialed from Canada.  Is there any way at all
possible to call a US 800 # from Canada?
