Canadian Dollar Exchange Rate History Graphs

Whether you're buying or selling Canadian Dollars it's always useful to see how the Canadian Dollar rate has changed over time so you can put the current rate into context and decide if now is a good time to place your order. Unfortunately most historical Canadian Dollar graphs are not based on actual high street data but instead show the inflated interbank rates which are not available to the general public. Our historical Canadian Dollar graphs are different because we plot the actual exchange rates that Canadian Dollars can be bought or sold at in the UK and are indicative of what you could have received if you ordered on the day.

We show two sets of data below. The first is the historical rate for Canadian Dollar travel money which is the rate you would receive if you bought Canadian Dollars. The second is the historical Canadian Dollar buy back rate which is the rate you would receive if you sold Canadian Dollars.
