I tried Bank of America and couple of other banks, they say they make drafts/MO/cashier checks in USD only.

I also visited some western union and currency exchange places, but they also do in USD. Please guide where can I get draft in Canadian dollars...this is for FSW1 category to send with application to Sydney, NS

Thanks....

ask them for an international draft.
You can also get from wachovia, citi, etc.

I heard you can also get one at USPS.

Please don't expect me to answer if your post title has urgent in it and it is not really urgent. Urgent is 911 or you have a definite deadline tomorrow, not that you would like to send in the application soon

You have to get a bank Draft for a bank.
USPS gives international money order but they will give like for 550 USD converted in canadian. but not other way round for CAD550.
western union/walmart etc gives only in USD.

I got it from Wells Fargo foreign exchange branch. I think you can get it from airport currency exchange also...although I am not sure...

But Wells Fargo did it for me pretty easily!

Just make the draft in US dollars, no need to be CAD $$ - Send it to CIC in US dollars and is accepted.

I paid both of my fees (Application Fee and RPRF) in US dollars draft, however I sent it to Buffalo and thought same rule applies everywhere.

If they change something recently then its my bad.

Chase bank does issue a 'canadian money order'. Didn't charge any for me but usually it's 5$ they say. Try it out.

BofA does make bank draft in Canadian dollars, but you need to order it over the phone.

FOLKS

I recently sent the application to sydney. I had the choice of getting a Chase or BOFA (charging $25 or $45). But i decided to use American Express service, they do it for $25 and get it very next day.

Lookup for an American express travel agent, call them up and tell them you want an International Draft for CAD.
