For the 24 hours to 23:00 GMT, the USD declined 0.39% against the CAD and closed at 1.3076.

The Canadian dollar climbed yesterday, after the Bank of Canada (BoC) in its policy meeting indicated that it had no intention of easing monetary policy.

The Bank of Canada (BoC), in its policy meeting, kept its interest rate unchanged at 1.75%, as widely expected. The central bank stated that Canada’s economy appears to have performed better than expected in the May to June period. Further, inflation remains around the bank’s 2.0% target, while a strong labour market is sustaining consumer spending.
