Canadians propose their ideas for future banknotes

The Bank of Canada has published the results from the public consultation into its banknote design principles. The public was asked in October of this year to participate in the design process for future banknotes, including the recently announced commemorative issue which is to be issued in 2017.

The results of the consultation can be found in this press release: "Of the nearly 2,000 Canadians who participated, about 80 per cent said they support the principles the Bank put forward. There was considerable interest in how bank notes reflect Canada and many respondents said greater emphasis should be put on representing gender equality, multiculturalism and aboriginal culture. Others said bank notes should show iconic Canadian activities and achievements, landscapes and famous Canadians."

Not really a surprising result is it? Canadian citizens still have the opportunity to propose ideas for the new commemorative note until 8 January 2015.
