In 2015 there was a staggering $626 million unclaimed Canadian dollars held in dormant bank or savings accounts in Canada. Balances held in accounts which have been dormant for 10 years or more get transferred to the Bank of Canada when the owner of the account cannot be contacted.

The Bank of Canada will then act as the custodian and will hold unclaimed balances under $1,000 for 30 years and balances over $1000 for 100 years.

The Canadian Dollar is the official currency of Canada. The ISO 4217 currency code for the Canadian Dollar is CAD.
