I did something slightly different to hedge the exchange rate. At my favorite brokerage, I didn't do anything with actual Canadian dollars, but I did buy Canadian bonds mutual fund with US dollars. The goal was that if the exchange rate varied, I was protected and I made some yield off the bonds at the same time. When I bought a trailer, I sold the mutual fund shares and used the US dollars I got from that to buy the trailer. One additional risk with this method (that was acceptable to me) involved interest rate differentials. I did this a while back when the exchange rate was near its most favorable and it worked out well for me. YMMV.
