Canadian Dollar Facts

Canadian dollar futures allow traders to assess value against the U.S. dollar, as well as the opportunity to address risk from currency fluctuations in other foreign trade markets.

The Canadian Dollar value has floated ever since 1970, and is the 7th most traded currency in the world.

The one-dollar coins are called “loonies”, named after the depiction of a loon bird on the coin. Two-dollar coins are called “toonies” a hybrid of “two” and “loonie” representing the value of two loonies.
