H4 Denied --after moving to canada-- unlawful presence issue

We moved to Canada by car and my employer has withdrawn my H1B application. but forgot to withdraw my wife H4. Today we got the letter saying that her H4 has been denied. It also talks about unlawful presence, but we have already left, long back. what should we do now. Do I need to reply them back. Does this has any impact in future.

I'm sorry to say this is a Canadian immigration forum and we are not American immigration experts. If you are really concerned you should speak to an American immigration lawyer.

Here is my best guess: The denial may have an impact upon your wife's travel to the US in the future and she should mention it whenever traveling to the US. But beyond that, I can't imagine it will have a huge impact since you've already left the States.
