Another thing to remember - US Money is accepted at the official exchange rate at all Canadian Banks - but US coins are legal tender at face value only in Canada (unless they are 1 dollar coins)

Most places in Canada will accept US money, but will give you less than the offical exchange rate - they will then give you your change in Canadian

US$1.00 bill = $1.06 Cdn

$1.00 CDN = $0.9432 US

- IT was really bad in 2002 when the Cdn dollar was worth 0.62 US and a US Dollar cost $1.62CDN -
