ForexTerms explains Bank of Canada

The Bank of Canada is much less interventionist in the currency market than other central banks. It shares this hands-off approach to monetary policy with Australia, and this is not a coincidence. Commodities arguably underlie both the CAD and the AUD, so the currencies tend to follow commodity prices rather than react to central bank policies.
