Exchange Rate in Canada
The Canadian dollar's exchange rate from 2013 to 2022 reflected fluctuations in prices for oil—the country's key export—and domestic economic conditions. The currency weakened significantly mid-decade as oil prices fell. However, it saw some recovery in subsequent years, before the Covid-19 pandemic led to further FX volatility.
The exchange rate ended 2022 at CAD 1.35 per USD, compared to the end-2021 value of CAD 1.26 per USD and the figure a decade earlier of CAD 1.06 per USD. For more exchange rate information, visit our dedicated page.
