VACCINATION

Please visit the MD Travel Health website and navigate to your destination country for information about any vaccinations you may require prior to traveling, or please visit your local travel clinic for the most up to date information.


CURRENCY

The Canadian currency is the Canadian dollar (CAN). For the latest currency exchange information use the  Yahoo! Currency Exchange Calculator

BEST WAY TO USE/GET LOCAL CURRENCY

Generally, the best way to get local currency is to use local ATMs when you arrive. Your bank will usually charge you a small fee to do this (typically around $5), and you may also get charged a fee by the local bank, but you will generally get a reasonable exchange rate (as opposed to local banks or money exchange desks).

Since you’re getting charged fees we recommend taking out a few days worth of local currency at a time, and an amount that you would feel comfortable carrying around (e.g. $100-$200). No point in taking out $500 to avoid $5 of ATM fees!
