About Us

Get to Know Us Better

Our History

Patel Currency Exchange opened in January 2019. The owner has well over a decade experience in managing businesses in the finance and retail industries. The general manager has a decade’s experience in management and customer service roles too. We thoroughly trained our staff to be able to keep transactions quick, friendly, secure and of great value, too!

Our Vision

Here at Patel Currency Exchange,  we aim to give you a welcoming, clean and bright space to conduct transactions. We strive to beat the bank with rates each day (especially USD!) and always give the best customer service possible.

Our Future

Our goal is to become Niagara’s go-to place for the best rates with the best customer service at  multiple convenient locations that can aid in sending and receiving money via Western Union, too!

Why Choose Us?

There are more than 3 reasons to choose us… you should visit us and see what they are!


Serious Savings

Every morning we check our rates to some of the biggest name bank’s rates, and each morning we keep beating them! We do have a $1.50 fee per transaction, but it’s still worth your while!



We carry over a dozen different currencies at any given time! We are located at Thorold Stone and Dorchester, just seconds from the QEW and minutes from Clifton Hill. 

If we don’t have the currency you want, leave it to us to try and get it for you! While we can’t make any promises about getting it, we can promise you we are going to try our best to do it in a timely manner!

Need to send money or receive money via Western Union? We can help with that too!


Great Atmosphere

We care about you, value your time and know that you deserve a warm, bright and welcoming environment to conduct your business. Service is always given with a genuine smile and a friendly chat.
