About Canadian Dollar (CAD)
The Bank of Canada manges the circulation and monetary policy of the floating yet highly dependent currency. The Canadian dollar (CAD) is heavily intertwined with economic developments in the United States and the USD this is compounded with the high trade dependence Canada shares with the US and is only mitigated by the price of commodities such as oil in which Canada is a net exporter and therefore can leverage these exports to support the CAD independent of the USD. The Bank of Canada follows its mandate of promoting the economic well being of the nation in juxtaposition to the mandate of many central banks as price stability.
