This Thursday, the Bank of Canada will host a ceremony to mark the entry into circulation of its Canada 150 commemorative banknote.
The $10 note, which was unveiled April 7 in Ottawa, will be issued on June 1 at 10:30 a.m. (AST) in the Rose and Kettle Tearoom of the Cole Harbour Heritage Farm Museum on 471 Poplar Dr. in Dartmouth, N.S.
“This bank note is intended to captivate our imagination and instil pride in what we, as a nation, have accomplished,” said bank Governor Stephen Poloz, who added the note showcases Canadian history, land and culture. “It celebrates the natural beauty and majesty of our land and some of the important parliamentarians who helped shape our great country.”
Monique LeBlanc, the bank’s regional director of currency, will be available to answer questions about the theme and the various security features of the commemorative note. More details will be available on June 1 at 9 a.m. (EST).
