I think you have EUR appearing somewhere in your files - perhaps in a P record ? You could find it with grep. 

Also try adding --debug=1 to your bal -V command. The manual for -V will explain more about how it works.

Also try minimising your data while still reproducing the problem - that will reveal it.

How do I fix this? How do I get a total in a specified currency, either  CAD or USD? 

TIA.

I do have  P records for 5 currencies including EUR indeed but no EUR valued assets in this specific account. Here is the debug output with account / file names masked:

Alas, I think your hledger version is too old to give the debug output I was hoping for (information about how -V is working).

You can find the cause by minimising your data. The comment / end comment directives can be helpful. Also try using -X COMM instead of -V, to remove some unknowns.
