CAD (Canadian Dollar)

The Canadian Dollar is often referred to as 'The Loonie', because of the loon bird that draws the attention on the $1 Canadian coin.


The CAD is the 7th most commonly traded currency in the world, and can be denoted with either a traditional '$' sign, or 'C$' to differentiate it from other Dollar-based currencies.

The economy of Canada enjoys a robust trade relationship with The United States, and large deposits of natural resources such as Oil and Natural Gas have helped the nation build a strong export business. The Canadian Dollar has evolved into a global reserve currency, often being held by many central banks in Central and South America. This evolution into a global reserve currency began in the 1970's, when it was allowed to float against all other world currencies.
