Yes I think paying GBP into CAD they will usually take our arm off it's the other other way round which is the sticky spot. I've checked my GBP santander and it about a £100 to process. But I'm not sure how high the amount I can put onto the CAD cheque. I'll ask BMO..
Cheers for replies Folks

Bank of Canada is predicted to raise interest rates again on Wednesday 17 Jan 2018 next week. Next round of NAFTA negotiations start the following week Tuesday 23 January 2018 and last for 5 days. Both events will influence the exchange rate.

Bank of Canada increase interest rates by 0.25% to 1.25%

Let's hope it continues raise rates in 2018 and kills the property bubble in Ontario
