If you’re sending money to the United States (or anywhere else), you want the gap between what you send and what your beneficiary receives to be as small as possible.
Unfortunately, this won’t happen if you use a bank or traditional financial institution to move funds. Banks offer unfavorable exchange rates, and you also need a bigger budget to cover the expensive international bank transfer fees.
The good news is there’s a simpler and cheaper way to send money to the United States from Canada.
Sending money to the United States has never been easier with a quick sign-up process, competitive currency rates, fast transfers, and the best-in-class technology to facilitate smooth payments.

What is a good USD/ CAD exchange rate?
Knowing where to look for the best place to exchange money is key to doing business globally. You have two main options when it comes to exchanging currency: your bank or global payment specialists, like MTFX.
While your bank may seem like an obvious place to start, they don’t always offer the best exchange rates available and can charge transfer fees of up to CAD 150.00 per transaction, which quickly add up if you need to make transfers often.
Is the Canadian Dollar getting stronger against the US Dollar?
