The Canadian dollar reached (and passed) parity with its American cousin today. The US dollar is now back up above the Loonie, but at one point this afternoon, it was trading for $0.9993 Canadian. This is the first time in over thirty years that we've had parity across the border.
On the one hand, it's nice to see the "Canadian peso" so strong, but I'm anxious to see just what this means for Canada in the next few years.
In the meantime, I'll just really enjoy our trip to Michigan in October.
