Abstract: The main result of this paper is that any proper collared embedding of $ {R^{n - 1}}$ in $ {R^n}$ can be extended to a homeomorphism of $ {R^n}$ such that the extension depends continuously on the original embedding in a stronger sense than previously known. Analogous results are proved for proper embeddings of $ {R^k}$ in $ {R^n}$ (with the usual homotopy conditions when $ k = n - 2$). An alternative proof of the usual compact form of the weak canonical Schoenflies theorem is also obtained.
