Canadian dollar (CAD) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Canadian dollar chart plots the actual Canadian dollar buyback rates offered by our panel of UK currency providers at the end of each day, so you can see the historical performance of the Canadian dollar against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the Canadian dollar to pound exchange rate, not the Canadian dollar buyback rate advertised in our Canadian dollar buyback comparisons. Both rates are the same, but the buyback rate is displayed in a different format due to the way UK currency suppliers advertise their buyback rates. Learn more
This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Canadian dollar against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Canadian dollar buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Canadian dollar to pound exchange rate, and the Canadian dollar buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Canadian dollar to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Canadian dollar in British pounds. For example, a Canadian dollar to pound rate of 0.625 means one Canadian dollar is worth 0.625 pounds.
In contrast, the Canadian dollar buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Canadian dollars you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Canadian dollar buyback rate of 1.6 means you'd have to exchange 1.6 Canadian dollars to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Canadian dollar buyback rate instead of the Canadian dollar to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Canadian dollar comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Canadian dollar to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Canadian dollar buyback rate into the actual Canadian dollar to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Canadian dollar buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 1.6 = 0.625.
