We offer a cost-effective way to settle foreign currency denominated invoices. Whether a client needs a monthly run of CD cheques payable to various suppliers, or a lump sum purchase to increase the balance of a USD operating account, a better rate can't be found anywhere else. Mahyar provides a wire payment service where clients also receive free wire confirmations by email or fax.  Business clients can also hedge their future CD payables with open-dated or fix-dated forward contracts.

Import and Export




Mahyar value to the foreign exchange process by providing clients with a banking alternative. Clients aren't obligated to convert their funds with their own financial institution. Those in the exporting business tend to convert their foreign currency revenues as needed to pay Canadian dollar expenses at month end. They may also hedge future revenue streams using open or fixed-dated forward contracts.

We work hard to streamline the exchange process, and offer a same day delivery/pick-up service. If you're going to be in the market, inform your account manager, and he or she can monitor the market for you.

In case you'd like to place a day-time or over-night order, you can keep up to date with the foreign exchange markets by subscribing to the The Currency Exchange (Mahyar) Foreign Exchange Daily Update.  Each morning, you will be emailed the update consisting of a recap of the over-night trading range, economic data releases, technical support and resistance points, and an economic calendar of upcoming events.

Whether clients are new immigrants from Asia, or C.A. citizens purchasing an investment property, the exchange rates we offer allow for significant savings.

We offer two recommendations:

  1. The client can set up both a USD and a CAD account at their Canadian bank. Once the USD funds have been wired from the U.S. bank into the USD account at the Canadian bank, they can withdraw the funds in the form of a bank draft made payable to The Currency Exchange (Mahyar). The client can contact the Mahyar trading desk and place a trade.
  2. The client can instruct their U.S. bank to wire USD funds directly to Mahyar. Typically, funds are received within one or two business days. Once the funds are received, a Mahyar trader contacts the client and arranges the conversion.

For Canadians looking to purchase property abroad, or foreigners selling Canadian property, Mahyar can assist in large volume foreign exchange.  Once the exchange is made, Mahyar can also wire transfer funds abroad.

Tourist exchange rates typically vary due to the relationship you have with the place where you are exchanging your currency. If you are exchanging your cash in your local bank in Canada, prior to travelling overseas, chances are you will be awarded a more favourable exchange rate as the bank values your business and most likely has a sizeable reserve of the foreign currency in stock. If you decide to exchange your currency in a bank in a foreign country, or through a convenience store in a touristy area, it is much more likely that the tourist exchange rates that you will be offered will be marked up. We have a wealth of local knowledge that will help you get the most out of your holidays.
