How to send money from Canada to Uganda at the best rate?

We currently compare 6 providers to send money to Uganda from Canada.

To send Canadian dollars to a bank account in Ugandan shillings in Uganda, the most competitive option is currently WorldRemit, with zero transfer fees and a very competitive CAD-UGX conversion rate (their current exchange rate is 1 CAD = 2,858.9906 UGX).

Adding the fees and exchange rate margin, the total cost with WorldRemit is 2.62 CAD, but the total cost of your transfer would be 11.46 CAD (roughly 4x as much) if you were to use Equity Direct for the very same transfer.

If your recipient wants to be able to pick up Ugandan shillings in cash in Uganda, then the most competitive provider currently is Remitly, with no transfer fees and a competitive CAD-UGX conversion rate (current rate: 1 CAD = 2,863.95 UGX).

When taking the exchange rate and the fees into account, the total cost of your transfer to a cash pick-up location in Uganda with Remitly is -0.03 CAD, in comparison you would pay a total cost of 19.51 CAD if you were to use WorldRemit to make the same transfer.

Affiliate Disclosure
Instead of banner ads and paywalls, Monito makes money through affiliate links to the various payment service providers featured on our website. While we work hard to scout the market for the best deals, we're unable to consider every possible product available to you. Our extensive range of trusted affiliate partners enables us to make detailed, unbiased, and solution-driven recommendations for all types of consumer questions and problems. This allows us to match our users with the right providers to suit their needs and, in doing so, match our providers with new customers, creating a win-win for everybody involved. However, while some links on Monito may indeed earn us a commission, this fact never impacts the independence and integrity of our opinions, recommendations, and evaluations.
