CNW- The Bank of Canada will begin circulating the new $5 and $10 bills, the final two notes in the new Polymer series, on Thursday, 7 November 2013.

A ceremony to officially issue the new $5 note, which symbolizes Canada’s continuing contribution to the International Space Station program through robotics innovation, and features the Canadarm2 and Dextre on the back of the note, will be held at the Canadian Space Agency in Saint-Hubert, Quebec.

Joining Bank of Canada Governor Stephen S. Poloz to speak at the event will be Chris Hadfield, retired Canadian astronaut and former Commander of the International Space Station.

A ceremony to officially issue the $10 note, which represents Canada’s great technical feat of linking its eastern and western frontiers by what was, at the time, the longest railway ever built, will be held simultaneously at Vancouver’s train station. Joining Senior Deputy Governor Tiff Macklem to speak at the event will be Marc Laliberté, President and CEO of VIA Rail Canada.
