Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This is a multifunction template. At its simplest, it adds the currency mark "CA$", as recommended by MOS:CURRENCY for many situations. The template can also link to the Canadian dollar article and can even calculate inflation. See warnings below.




  • {{CA$}}CA$
  • {{CA$|123.45}}CA$123.45


The parameter |link=yes may be used to link CA$ to the article Canadian dollar. This is turned off by default, but may be appropriate for the first occurrence of the term in an article.


  • {{CA$|123.45|link=yes}}CA$123.45

Inflation calculation[edit]

The template supports inflation calculation, by way of {{Inflation}}. If the second parameter is used, to specify a year, and this year is within a certain range of available inflation data (specifically, if 1914 ≤ year < 2016), the equivalent value represented in 2016 dollars will be calculated in parentheses. However, this function should only be used in appropriate situations.

  • {{CA$|value|year}}
  • {{CA$|value|year|round=round|about=yes}}


  • {{CA$|100|1913}}CA$100
  • {{CA$|100|1914}}CA$100 (equivalent to $2,140 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|100|1966}}CA$100 (equivalent to $733.71 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|100|1966|link=yes}}CA$100 (equivalent to $733.71 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|100|2015}}CA$100 (equivalent to $101.42 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|100|2016}}CA$100
  • {{CA$|100|2018}}CA$100
  • {{CA$|100|2019}}CA$100

Additional parameter |about=yes will cause the template to calculate to the nearest dollar (instead of the nearest cent), and prefix the calculated value with "about". The rounding can be fine-tuned further by using |round=integer. These parameters may be combined.


  • {{CA$|10|1935}}CA$10 (equivalent to $175.89 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|10|1935|round=0}}CA$10 (equivalent to $176 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|10|1935|about=yes}}CA$10 (equivalent to about $176 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|1000|1935|round=2}}CA$1,000 (equivalent to $17,589.04 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|1000|1935|round=-2}}CA$1,000 (equivalent to $17,600 in 2016)
  • {{CA$|1000|1935|round=-2|about=yes}}CA$1,000 (equivalent to about $17,600 in 2016)
