Hi singletrvl;

Many businesses will accept American currency as a courtesy to American tourists. Businesses that choose to accept US dollars set their own exchange rate, so you may find the rate different from store to store. You will receive your change in Canadian funds. Coins, as a general rule, are accepted at face value…at par.

Automated equipment, i.e. vending machines, public transit machines, parking meters, etc - basically anything where you insert coins / bills... will only accept Canadian currency.

Most places will take credit and debit cards.

Usually the casinos provide better exchange rates than the banks...usually.

For some money saving tips, read the traveler article “Canada – Banks & Money” here on TA.

To add to the answer above, yes, there is a bank close to the Casino. If you go out the front of the Casino and travel WEST (back toward downtown) for a total of 2 blocks, you will arrive at the corner of Riverside Drive and Ouellette. There is a CIBC (large national bank). Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

Assuming you are going to the Casino anyway, just exchange your US $ there.

Let's face it...no one handles more cash than casinos. It's their whole business !!

Yes, I just got back and had a great time. I did exchange money at the casino and they also had the best rates. Played slots a lot and ended up losing in long run(as usual!). But I did not think the slots were too tight.
