How does the Canadian dollar trade against the Brazilian real historically?

The Canadian dollar is one of the top ten most traded currencies in the world, and the real is among the most actively traded of emerging market currencies.

When the Brazilian real was introduced in July 2004, it roughly maintained parity with the Canadian dollar. Since the Brazilian real has undergone a devaluation of more than 20% due to economic crises and insufficient currency inflows in recent years, it still maintains a closer parity than the US dollar, considering the Canadian dollar has also seen a big drop in value.
