WOW Air is showing winter and spring flights from Toronto to Copenhagen, Denmark for $389 CAD roundtrip including taxes.
The actual cost of the 'flight only' is '$229 CAD roundtrip including taxes', but I like to add $160 CAD to WOW Air's roundtrip prices to European cities, which gives you 1 piece of checked luggage, for a more honest representation of the price relative to other airlines.
1 small carry-on, weighing up to 10kg, and a maximum size of 42x32x25cm is included in the 'flight only' price.
Booking in another currency to save $$ - the strategy
To book these at a significantly lower price requires booking 2 separate one way flights. You book one flight from Toronto to Europe on the Canadian version of the WOW Air website.
And then you book your flight home from Europe to Toronto on the foreign version of the WOW Air website.
Make sure that both flights are actually available before you book either one of them. This strategy does involve some risk. If you book the one-way flight to Copenhagen, and then the one-way flight home increases in price in the mean time, you're out of luck.
You also need to be comfortable with booking a flight on a version of a website that is not in English.
If you try this, you may want to book the flight home first, to make sure you are able to successfully book a flight on the website that is not in English. Booking the flight from Toronto to Europe on the English website will be straight-forward.
This strategy may also work for flights from Toronto to Stockholm, Sweden (ARN) - but it seems like the Swedish version of WOW Air's website is currently having technical difficulties.

Copenhagen, Denmark to Toronto - 670 Danish Krone = $130 CAD
- select 'Enkelt' (one way)

When you book a flight in a foreign currency using a Canadian credit card, you are typically charged around 2.5% extra, as a foreign exchange fee. I've reflected this in the price above (based on today's exchange rate, 670 Danish Krone really equals about $125 CAD).
