Canadian Exchange Rates

28 July, 2011


The Bank of Canada makes its monthly interest rate decision next Tuesday, January 20th.

For anyone buying Canadian dollars, your exchange rate is likely to be affected. Typically a lower interest rate means a weaker (cheaper) currency, so an interest rate cut (or speculation leading up to the announcement in the coming days) could mean that sending money to Canada becomes slightly cheaper.

Canadian exchange rates are currently near their worst for the last 12 months, and with the UK economy struggling even more than most other developed nations, anyone moving to Canada should get in touch with a specialist foreign exchange company to make sure they are up to date with the latest currency news.
