How does CAD trade against the INR historically?
Historically the CAD has seen growth against INR. In January 1994 the CAD traded at INR 23.79, and by the next year it crossed the INR 25 mark. It continued to rise, and by January 2000 it hit INR 30.
The CAD continued to gain against the INR even after 2000, largely because of high public debt and rising inflation in India. The Canadian economy, on the other hand, received a boost due to strong global oil prices and a growing demand for exports.
The Indian government was able to get its growth rate to around 7% between 1997 and 2011, but the CAD continued to gain ground. In May 2006 the CAD rose to INR 40 for the first time. Its value against the INR continued climbing for the next couple of years — by the end of 2011 it valued at more than INR 50.

What affects CAD to INR exchange rate?
The Indian government introduced economic reforms in 2012, which included increasing foreign participation levels in direct investment, but this didn’t stop the INR from its downward trend against the CAD.
The US Federal Reserve Board’s 2013 announcement that it was considering a cut-back on its foreign bond buying program greatly affected foreign investors in India.
The INR fell hard against currencies like the US dollar (USD) and British pound sterling (GBP), and a bit less so against the CAD. By March 2014 the CAD traded at INR 54.87. In February 2015 the CAD fell below the INR 50 mark, and in August 2015 it traded at INR 49.39.
India’s positive long-term growth and a projected 7% GDP growth in the coming years looks good for the INR. However high unemployment and high public debt challenge Canada’s economy. There is hope that demand for its oil and other Canadian commodities will help.
Finding the best time to trade overall depends on what’s happening politically, economically and socially in India or Canada. Watch for market fluctuations when you think you’re ready to trade.
