Traveling to Canada? You’re going to need to know a bit about the currency that you’ll be using while you’re there. Canada uses the Canadian dollar, which is symbolized by either CAD or C$. When making purchases in Canada, expect to at least have to pay one type of sales tax per transaction. It’s safer to assume that every purchase is worth at least 15% more than the listed price. Although the tax rates can be lower, it’s better to err on the side of caution. When in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask.
