About

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.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15.  Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
