Pounds GBP to CAD exchange rate

How far will my money go throughout Canada?

Canada is a vast and diverse country, so the answer to the question of "how far will my money go" varies depending on where you are visiting. For example, Toronto, Ontario, is one of the most expensive cities in Canada, so if you're travelling there with British Pounds (GBP), it won't go as far as it would in other cities.

On the other hand, Montreal and Vancouver are much more economic cities, so you'll get more for your money. If you're looking for a more outdoorsy experience, then you can explore Canada's great skiing opportunities, which are relatively cheap compared to other destinations. No matter where you go in Canada, you'll find something that fits your budget and interests.
