About the Canadian Dollar
The Canadian Dollar is commonly represented by its currency code (CAD) and in its symbol form ($). You will need to have Canadian Dollars on hand for your visit to any part of Canada; even the French province of Quebec uses the same coins and banknotes. In fact, both English and French are official languages of Canada, so you will see both written on banknotes to represent the bilingual nature of the land.
The Canadian Dollar is made up of 100 cents, just like the US Dollar. You will also recognize the same coin structure under the one-dollar mark: one-cent, five-cent, ten-cent, and twenty-five-cent coins are used in Canada. These are commonly referred to as the cent, nickel, dime, and quarter respectively. The one-dollar coin is called the “loonie”, while the two-dollar coin is known affectionately as the “toonie” (1).
The beautiful country of Canada stretches from the British Columbia coast on the west, to the smaller Maritime Provinces on the east. There is a great mix of landscape, including mountains, rolling hills, forests, fields and tundra. Combine this with the cosmopolitan and multicultural cities for a break like no other.
Business visitors can also take whirlwind trips through the major cities: Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and Quebec City. Toronto, the largest city in Canada, is often known as the cultural, entertainment and financial capital of Canada, so there should be plenty to do on your trip.
