Oh Canada… that exchange rate!

I could write this article in two emojis and you would know what I meant. The dollar sign and the emoji with clenched teeth, they pretty much sum it up.

So, what can we do as travelling Canadians with a 70 cent dollar? What if it gets worse?

What will we do with a 59 cent dollar? Forecasters are saying by the end of 2016, our dollar could hit an all time low.

Here are our best options as I see it:

  1. Stay home! Let’s explore and celebrate our own country. Let this be the year you see the coast, see the mountains and most importantly re-connect with your own family. Let this be, the year that we revive the family road trip.
  2. Be the best hosts! Let us, as a community and as individuals, invite our American friends and neighbours to come and visit Canada. An injection of funds will stimulate our economy. Let’s use tourism so as to build our own jobs and showcase our great nation.
