The Canadian dollar exchange rate can even be affected by relations with their North American partner, the US and the two are inextricably linked, particularly when it comes to trade which is one of the factors that often affects currency rates. 

Both countries receive data relating to manufacturing, retails and inflation throughout the month that can affect the pound to dollar rate, but it is also affected by political conversation. Even a tweet from a political leader or influencer can have an effect on the foreign exchange market. Because of the unpredictable nature of these factors, particularly political voices, it can be difficult to navigate the foreign exchange market when you have a large international payment to make.
