Annual or Spot Exchange Rate?

I only received ONE Canadian Pay Check in January 2009 (Before moving to USA). For US Income Tax Purposes (Doing 1040 for Full Year World Income), do I use the Spot Exchange Rate on that Date or Annual 2009 Rate? The ONE Canadian Pay Check was for Hours Worked in Late 2008 & A 2008 Year-End Bonus. T...
