The Canadian Dollar (CAD) is the official currency used in Canada, issued by the Bank of Canada. The Canadian Dollar is represented by a $ symbol, or sometimes C$ to tell it apart from other countries’ dollars. The Canadian Dollar has several nicknames, including Loonie, buck, Huard, and ‘piastre’ in French. Use of the British Pound in Canada stopped in 1949.
