The national currency in Canada is the Canadian Dollar. When you are travelling to Canada you must be sure that you exchange your home currency with Canadian Dollars. This would allow you to be at ease when you are travelling through Canada and when you need to buy items and services. Canadian notes are made from polymer and therefore they stick together easily so be extra careful when you stack them together.
