About Calforex Currency Services

About Calforex Currency Services

In 1983, Calgary Foreign Exchange opened its office doors at 407 – 2nd Street S.W., Calgary, Alberta. As the foreign exchange business grew, Calgary Foreign Exchange began it expansion into the retail industry countrywide.

In April 1993, Calgary Foreign Exchange started operating under the name of Currencies International to reflect the international capacity of our growing company.

In 2000, we wanted to mark our entry into the new century with a revitalized corporate identity. We changed our name to Calforex, an abbreviation of Calgary Foreign Exchange. It’s contemporary, unique, and catchy.

Today, we operate retail locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. Toni Treutler is the President of Calforex and oversees the day-to-day operations of the company.
