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 business countrywide.
In April 1993, Calgary Foreign Exchange started operating under the name of Currencies International in order to emphasize the national scope taken on by the growing company.
In 2000, we wanted to mark our entry into the new century of doing business with a revitalized corporate identity. Therefore, we changed our name to CALFOREX, an abbreviation of Calgary Foreign Exchange. It’s contemporary, unique, and catchy.
