Send Canadian dollars the wise way

1 minute read

Want to save money when you send Canadian dollars? There’s a smarter, cheaper way to send money internationally.

When you convert currencies with traditional providers, such as a bank, a broker or PayPal, you typically pay a lot more than you expect. On top of fees they charge, they use an exchange rate with a mark-up, which often ends up costing you more than what you thought you’d pay.

Wise is different. We’re on a mission to build faster, cheaper and fairer international payments. Our fees are completely transparent and they’re a fraction of what banks or brokers usually charge. We use the real exchange rate with no mark-up, so you know exactly how much you’re paying every time. It's international banking built the right way.

How Wise works:

  • Our transfers are fast, fair and low cost – the fee is typically below 1% of the total amount you're sending plus a small fixed fee.
  • You always get the real exchange rate for your Canadian dollars - with no costly mark-up.
  • You can make CAD transfers straight from, or from our iOS and Android apps.
  • You can send money with Wise directly to other bank accounts or to the Wise borderless account, which lets you spend, send and receive money in multiple currencies.

8 million people already save using Wise - and they're all pretty cool.

Meet Canadian guitarist Jeremy Hiebert, who not only shed his conservative religious background; he formed hardcore punk band Comeback Kid, whom he tours across Europe with.

“Our tour manager and our accountant told us about Wise, and said that we’d save a lot of money on the exchange rate. We set up a local account with Wise in Germany, so now the money gets wired there, which saves us money. I’m thankful for it.”
