Average June temperature in Vancouver is 15ºC / 59ºF.
The currency used in Vancouver, and indeed the rest of Canada, is the Canadian Dollar. There are 100 cents in a dollar, and currency comes in the following denominations:
• Coins – 5 cents (nickel), 10 cents (dime), 25 cents (quarter), one dollar (loonie) and two dollars (toonie).
• Notes – The lowest value paper note is $5, then $10, $20, $50, $100 etc.
Using banks and ATM’s is usually better value overall. You can use a credit card to make withdrawals which would usually incur a foreign currency fee, plus some banks charge an ATM fee, but you usually get a much better rate of exchange from your credit card company. Secondly you could use a debit card for cash withdrawals. Check to see if your debit card has a ‘Cirrus’ symbol on it in order to use it an ATM.
