The Canadian Dollar: Price, Government Debt, & Interest Rates

The following charts come from the team at Trading Economics. Their site is an incredible resource for all sorts of charts and information.

The Canadian dollar fell to a low of 80 cents against the U.S. dollar during the panic of 2008 and has since rebounded to parity and has hovered at that level for years.


Since 2000, the 10-year government bond has fallen from the 6% range in almost a straight line decline to today's 2% range.


The Canadian debt to GDP has moved from 66.5% in 2008 up to 84.6% today.
