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.
