The Canadian currency is the Canadian dollar (CAN). For the latest currency exchange information use a Currency Calculator on google or other browsers or get information right from your bank.
Generally, the best way to get local currency is to use local ATMs when you arrive. Your bank will usually charge you a small fee to do this (typically around $5), and you may also get charged a fee by the local bank, but you will generally get a reasonable exchange rate (as opposed to local banks or money exchange desks).
Since you’re getting charged fees we recommend taking out a few days worth of local currency at a time, and an amount that you would feel comfortable carrying around (e.g. $100-$200). No point in carrying $500 on you just to avoid $5 of ATM fees!
At most places you can pay with your creditcard too. Ask your local bank about possible fees when using your card abroad.
