Its important for Canadian tourism operators to keep on top on the currency fluxuations, particularly for those operating near the U.S. border where some visitors to the area may be paying with U.S. currency. Its also a good business practice for local businesses to offer a fair rate of exchange on U.S. currency. Even for those paying with credit cards, where the exchange rate is factored in automatically, its always good to know the exchange rate in the event they ask.
