    In the final quarter of the year China’s yuan has weakened past the key 7 per US dollar level.

    For two years until April 2022 the yuan has steadily strengthened to 6.3 per US dollar, but then the PBOC has abruptly allowed CNY to drop with market sentiment worsening towards China’s economy due to continuing Covid-zero restrictions and a slowing economy.

    Since the start of the Russia/Ukrainian war the risk on-off markets had been pushing the Canadian dollar rate up and down in a range around 0.7850 to the US dollar.

    However from mid-September the loonie has weakened down from this range to around 0.73 relative to the greenback.

    How to get a good CAD to CNY Exchange Rate

    There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

    Reduce Excessive costs and fees

    Generally speaking, if you are buying Chinese yuan with Canadian dollar, then it's good for the CAD/CNY exchange rate to be higher.

    However working against you are the fees all foreign exchange providers charge for providing their service. These fees is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

    The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

    Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
