New polymer bills out in November
Sept. 17, 2013, Ottawa – The new polymer $5 and $10 bank notes will enter circulation in November.
The $5 and $10 notes, unveiled in April, will be used extensively in vending, self-serve retail checkouts, as well as parking and transit machines. To help ease the transition, the same gradual approach used for the introduction of the polymer $20 notes will be adopted for the new $5s and $10s.
If you have machines with note acceptors, contact your supplier to find out if any upgrades are necessary.
