Factors of Weakness

Dependence on United States as a major counterparty

The Canadian dollar is the official currency of Canada and is the 7th most traded currency in the world. It is often nicknamed “loonie” for the image of the aquatic bird on $C1 coin. The loonie was introduced as a currency used in Canada and all of its provinces in 1871, while the fixed exchange rate was abandoned in 1970. It is used by some central banks as a reserve currency. The performance of the currency depends on raw materials. Prices for crude oil are the most influential factor on the value of Canada’s dollar as oil is the most important export of Canada.
