EXCHANGE
RATES

The US dollar has
strengthened against the Canadian dollar in the past few months,  and the two currencies are now roughly at
par, with fluctuations. The current rate of exchange is approximately US $1.001
to CDN $1.00. Allowing for commissions, you should expect to receive slightly
less in Canadian currency than the same figure in US dollars. When spending,
the currencies and amounts can generally be regarded as equal.
