But the RRSP is still physically located in Canada at a Canadian institution. Its still not "outside of Canada". The income generated within the plan is generated in Canada and from contributions earned in Canada.

Just because you move to the U.S. does not make your Canadian savings subject to US income tax. You're responsible only for income earned in the US.
