Canadian Currency

Canadian Currency

Although U.S. currency is usually accepted in Canada, we recommend exchanging any international currency (or travellers cheques) for Canadian dollars at any Canadian financial institution, bank, trust company, credit union, co-operative, caisse populaire or exchange booths at airports and border crossing points.

Exchange Information

Less favourable exchange rates may be given by commercial establishments. Use Canadian money while travelling in Canada to avoid exchange problems. Current Canadian currency exchange information is available from the Bank of Canada.
