You may recall a couple of weeks ago we were looking for the opinion of Live 105 listeners on which iconic Canadian women should appear on Canadian money. Well it’s time to have your voice heard, because PM Justin Trudeau said the next new round of Canadian money, due out in 2018, will in fact feature, for the first time, a Canadian Woman.
The news was announced on International Women’s Day yesterday.
The nominees can be any Canadian woman, either by birth or naturalization, who has demonstrated outstanding leadership, achievement or distinction in any field, but they cannot be a fictional character and must have died prior to April 15, 1991.
From now until April 15 of this year, Canadians can visit the Bank of Canada’s website to submit nominations for the woman they think should appear on the bill.
