Your best bet is to use bank ATMs; you will save money on conversion fees. Most countries, Canada included, are on the PLUS/CIRRUS networks.

Just stop at the rest stop just N. of the I-87 checkpoint to get some cash. Good fees there. Besides, you'll need to pee

Use credit cards otherwise.

I always use the Royal Bank at Ste Catherine & Stanley (I think it's Stanley - just up the street from Le Centre Sheraton). Good rate.

FYI: Be careful when using credit cards. Many credit card companies now charge a "foreign exchange fee" of 3% which negates any savings you may have gotten, and may even cost you more. Check out this article for more details and advice: smartertravel.com/travel-advice/…

Convert some of your money just before you cross the border at the duty free shop as you'll need to tip/duke those who will help you with your luggage and car. They deserve it, and are a great source of information as well. Enjoy.
