How to send money to Canada at a great exchange rateWhen looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the Canadian dollar (CAD) is a commodity currency, so its exchange rate may be affected by the price of commodities like gold, forestry products, and oil. Also, because the CAD trades actively against the U.S. dollar, its value will depend upon the strength of the U.S. economy.
