Talk to a reputable business that sells product or services to the states like a trucking company. They get paid in u.s. funds and have to pay a fee to exchange it to Canadian. They may be happy to make the transaction and you both win. I haven't done this in a while but it used to work well.

If you going to be exchanging a large amount, like to buy equipment or something, see if your bank has a trader at head office to purchase the US$, they will give a much better rate then your manager. I use Cambridge FX to sell US $ and put orders in for strike prices and the fee rate for this is around .20 to .40 points off the floor price. The fee will vary on the amount you are trading. 100k will get you a good rate.
