VANCOUVER — Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz says the central bank is working on plans for a new $5 bill.
Speaking in Vancouver, Poloz says the bank will soon be launching public consultations about who should appear on the new bill.

The consultations will be similar to those that led to the choice of Viola Desmond for the $10 bill which began circulation in 2018.
Desmond, a Nova Scotia civil rights pioneer and businesswoman, was selected by the finance minister to be on the $10 bill after an open call for nominations for iconic women who could appear on a bank note.

Poloz says this time the bank will be asking Canadians to nominate any historic Canadian they think may be worthy to be on the new bill.

Gord Downie was a decent musician, not world class, but decent. The most famous thing about him was the fact that he died of cancer and it was well publicized. Neil Peart just died of the same thing, but he was a much more private person. He was an outstanding musician/songwriter.

|That said....Terry Fox would be nice on the fiver.

Let’s put Terry Fox on the $5 bill!



The Bank of Canada says they’re working on plans for a new $5 bill, and they’ll be asking Canadians to nominate historic Canadians.
