An important part of planning your move to Canada is figuring out the currency exchange rate between Canada and your home country. There are several online tools that can help your track the exchange rates anytime of the day. You can also check rates at your local banking institution.

To check the exchange rate using the tool on the right, chose the currency of your home country from the "From" drop-down menu and chose Canadian Dollars from the "To" drop-down menu. Enter the amount of money you would like to check (for example, $100.00) in the "Amount" blank, then click "Convert" and the tool will show how many Canadian dollars you would receive for $100.00 of your home currency.
