How to Convert Your Canadian Dollars to Australian Dollars?

Last Updated: 25 Nov 2023

Need to convert Canadian to Australian dollars? Using a specialist provider can put hundreds or thousands of extra savings in your pocket on one transaction alone.

Australia is an export nation, exporting¹ over $1 billion worth of goods to Canada in one year, including inorganic chemicals, metals, pearls, edible fruits, and meat.

That means Canadian businesses need to make international payments to their Australian suppliers. Australia is also a popular study destination for Canadian students, who then need to send money to cover the cost of living and studying abroad.

Hence, converting CAD to AUD is a regular affair for many businesses and individuals. If that’s you, consider switching from your bank to a specialist overseas transfer service offering better exchange rates and low transfer fees.

Understanding the CAD to AUD exchange rate

The Canadian dollar (CAD) and Australian dollar (AUD) are ranked as the most tradable currencies². The CAD or loonie is heavily connected to the USD, and it also helps that Canada is rich in natural resources like uranium, making it one of the biggest economies in the world. Further, it can be assessed in detail by observing the USD/AUD trends.

The Aussie dollar is also popular because of the country’s extensive wealth of natural resources. That said, exchange rates change every split second, and the AUD/CAD exchange rate is no different.

Several factors³ make the Australian dollar rise and fall, including interest rate differentials, commodity prices, and sentiment and speculation. These factors determine the demand for and supply of Australian dollars in the foreign exchange market.

Similarly, key drivers⁴ behind movements in the Canadian dollar exchange rate include the country’s interest rates and inflation rates relative to other countries.

Another factor is the demand for Canada’s financial assets, like stocks and bonds. The point here is if you’re converting Canadian dollars to Australian dollars, it helps to understand how the forex market works.

That way, you can easily navigate exchange rates. Fortunately, MTFX has the right tools to ensure FX rate transparency, including the CAD to AUD converter.

What’s the Canadian to Australian dollar exchange rate?

When changing Canadian dollars to Australian dollars, the exchange rate depends on who you ask. If you ask your bank, they’ll have an exchange rate markup to make a profit on the transfer. Therefore, your exchange rate will be less favorable.

The higher the markup, the less you end up with when you convert currency. If you ask a specialist provider like MTFX, we’ll tell you that we use the mid-market rate, which is the true rate with no markup. That means your recipient gets more when you exchange currency.
