Good service but a little tricky to find. If entering from outside at the Cargill building on Graham, take the elevator to the 2nd floor and it's a few stores to the left.
Service is good and you get your money right away unlike banks that there's limit plus waiting period because they have to order some money if they don't have enough in cash.
Preordered some MXN with no issues. You can ask for specific denominations and the rate was cheaper than the bank (when pre-ordering). Very good rate compared to the peso exchange in Mexico. So be assured the rate they offer is fair. They were very quick to message me back on Google messages to arrange pick up time and confirmation that they have the order. The gentleman that assisted me the day of was professional and friendly.
Decent customer service, fair exchange rate, they carry some exotic currencies that you can't find elsewhere, glad they got COP for me and even offered me discount rate. Thanks!
They have really good rates compare to other currency exchange services in Winnipeg. Very helpful staff and I always prefer to go here for currency exchange because of great rates.
great rates, also they carry lots of currencies that you cannot find elsewhere in town.

Currency exchange is changing one currency to another for the purpose of travel, purchase or investment. According to a study of Bank for International Settlements, daily average was more than $6 trillion trading volume. Currency Mart acts as a counter-party to an off-exchange or an over-the-counter forex transaction of cash, financial instruments, futures contracts, options on futures contracts. Currency exchange is a decentralized market and operates 24 hours per day around the globe. London, New York and Tokyo are the three major currency exchange markets and followed by cities of Hong Kong and Singapore. Decentralized market means each currency exchange broker offers its own buy in and sell out exchange rates. The rates are determined based on the demand, inventory and supply of the particular dealer and also the interbank rates at that moment. That is why exchange rates at the same moment are similar, but different broker to broker.
Annually, about $600 billion Canadian dollars exchanged to other currencies, over 50% is changed to US dollar and Euro dollar is the second most wanted currency. RBC is the major player in Canadian foreign exchange market. With the other four major banks, banks count 90% of market transaction volume. In addition to banks, large corporations who deal with petroleum or grains conduct massive amount of foreign exchange transactions. Licensed brokers who serve retail clients and small businesses fill up the rest of market gap.
The demand of currency exchange in Winnipeg is mainly from agricultural activies, because most farmers sell their grains to United States and get payment by us dollars. In addition, purchasing property, vehicle, pay tutition and travel expense are supplements of the currency exchange market in Winnipeg. In fact, the amount of exchanging USD to CAD is much more than exchanging CAD to USD.
USD CAD exchange is the most important trading currency pair in Canada. The particular currency pair can count up to 50% of transaction volumn for a Canadian currency exchange broker. For some province, the precentage is even higher. Currency Mart as a currency exchange dealer, we always keep USD currency in stock for customers demand.
Our rates are not as same as other Winnipeg currency exchange dealers. Each dealer set up its owner currency exchange rates based on the mid-market rates and adjusted the mark up according to its inventory level and other factors. One thing for sure is since our mark up are lower than banks, the currency exchange rates we offer are better than banks.
Google or ther media posts the mid-market exchange rate, which is the average number between a buy in rate and a sell out rate. The mid-market rate is a good refererence number for general public to have a brief idea what the current exchagne rate right now, but the mid-market rate is not the rate that the financial market is currently trading at. In addition, Google or other media posts a rate which ususally is about at least 20 minutes ago. When we trade at Currency Mart, we apply up to second live rates.
If you pay attention to currency exchange rate long enough, you will have a brief idea what is happening now and you may have a senose of prediction what will happen in the next a few months. Oppositely, as a currency exchange dealer, we have no idea what will happen during the same day or even during the same week.
