No, it doesn't mean Canadian. I don't know what it means, but it is the amount you will pay in US dollars.

All you have to do is go to xe.com, it will convert the actual amount based on closing market prices for currency. It shows that 54,28 Euros is within a few cents of $67.28 US. I order from Amazon.de all the time, that's the converted price that will be charged.

All right... so the Europeans use commas where we use periods in numbers.

Which means:
38.78 Euro = ca. $48.12
15.50 Euro = ca. $19.23
54.28 Euro = ca. $67.38

based on exchange rates at http://www.xe.com/ucc/

"ca." is an abbreviation for "circa" which is Latin meaning "approximately."
