We are traveling to Egypt for 2 weeks in November and are departing from Canada, And are wonderign if you can easily use Xanadian money in Egypt. We are hoping its possible because we really dont want to have to transfer it over to U.S because of money lose..

Never heard of CAS being accepted. If you don't have EGP most popular is USD followed by EUR then GBP. Why not just convert directly to EGP before you leave Canada?

You can change your CAD on landing at the visa booths, at most banks and probably in your hotel.

Don't change the money before you leave, you can easily do it at the airport and at currency exchange places. Just make sure the bills are not wrinkly.

I would however take maybe 50 $1 dollar us bills for tips as it's hard to find sometimes small denomination Egyptian currency.

You can also use your debit card to withdraw money from the cash machines. This way you are converting Canadian to Egyptian. Just be careful and have a couple of cards, my TD Canada Trust card would not work over there.
