exchange rate/currency US/Canadian dollars

Jump to last reply

Now that the exchange rate is essentially even, do many places in Canada, especially border towns, accept US currency for small items on an even basis or are they currently charging exchange rate plus some sort of fee/premium.

I certainly do not expect merchants to act as currency exchanges for free - just wondering since I have not travelled to Canada when exchange rate was so even.
