Please be absolutely sure that you are calculating the resultant Canadian dollars the right way. For example, the Canadian dollar is worth substantially more than a Vietnamese dong, and less than a US$.  A handy place to lookup spot exchange rates is xe.net.

The Canadian Revenue Agency states:

"If you need to convert your income or deductions to Canadian dollars, you can get the exchange rates for 2009 from the Exchange Rates page of the Bank of Canada Web site" which I have done so here on an unofficial basis. Please check the Bank of Canada website for where to get official numbers.
