“This is a great service, I have only used it twice with currency request online. It is easy quick and very secure all from the convenience of your computer.”
“Consistently offers the best prices for currency exchange. Fast, professional and easy, especially if you order online and have it mailed.”
“They gave me a better rate than the bank would, also better than the place in the Eaton Center. They even had Costa Rican currency in stock, which a standard bank requires ordering in advance.”

A Rich History
Originally named Bytown, the city of Ottawa has a rich history as a backdrop to its journey to becoming Canada’s capital. Founded in 1826, Queen Victoria selected Ottawa as the capital city because it was primely located in dense forest, on top of a cliff, and a sizable distance from the United States border – therefore decreasing its chances of being attacked by enemies. The Rideau River and Ottawa River also served as perfect transportation routes to other parts of the country.
Public service, tourism, healthcare and tech are top employment industries in this city. A diverse tech hub, Ottawa has been a leader in telecommunication technology for decades. With access to top tech talent and a gateway to other North American markets, this city is the ideal environment for boosting business growth. An added benefit is that the cost of doing business in Ottawa is less expensive than other major tech cities.
