Is it possible to get currency exchanged on weekend in Stratford?

Hi SSWSue;

I see from your previous post that you will be visiting the Niagara Region. I would strongly suggest exchanging your money at one of the 2 casinos in Niagara Falls where you will receive a much better rate of exchange, than in Stratford at a bank.

Best Regards

In Stratford, there's a TD Canada Trust downtown (41 Downie St) that's open 8 am-4 pm on Saturdays, and a RBC branch at 966 Ontario Street (a little east of downtown) open 9 am-3 pm on Saturdays.

Both locations, and all the other bank branches in town, should have 24-hour ATMs. These actually give pretty good exchange rates, though you may pay $5 or so in ATM fees (some to the ATM owner, some to your own bank) so it's best to make one large withdrawal.

I agree, the exchange rate will be a bit better at the casinos. And you won't have to worry about getting there by 3 or 4pm to exchange!

SSWSue's other post was about an April trip to Niagara. I suppose it's true, though: if she could go back in time and change more money at April's rates, she'd do much better than today's rates anywhere...
