Also researched topic prior to paying for ours in late September. It seems that its not so much the loonie is tanking as much as the dollar is rising. It tends to move in seven year cycles and guess what? So anyway, you could pay for some now, then see. It is a moving target. Brokerage house was a good way to pay, just stay on top of the transaction to be sure its converted.
