US Dollar - Canadian Dollar Forecasting

September was a relatively stable month for the CAD versus other major currencies. Bank of Canada left rates unchanged at 0.25% for the fourth time, as expected, maintaining its dovish (conservative) tone as the economy faces a slowdown. GDP results have recently exceeded market expectations, however, are still below pre-pandemic levels. Canada faces a second wave of COVID-19 and has reintroduced targeted restrictions to some provinces. The CAD, which had been gaining ground against the US dollar since mid-April, has begun to lose ground. The CAD remains vulnerable to further corrections in risk sentiment as markets re-assess expectations for global growth amid the uncertainty of a second coronavirus wave.  October Update

How to get Best CAD to USD Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee 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.
