The Bank of Canada Museum would like to hear from teachers across Canada to help design new online resources for economic literacy.
The first Canadian paper money was issued in 1817, and for the next 120 years, the vast majority of Canadian bank notes were only in English.
Bank of Canada Museum will be at the 66th annual convention of the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association (RCNA).

During World War Two, the Bank created the Foreign Exchange Control Board (FECB). One of its major tasks was to find as many US dollars as possible to pay for American imports.
We’re really rather nice. We are here to help you understand what the Bank does and how it matters to you. But, we are also a museum in the traditional sense, so the history of World and Canadian currency will also be explored: exhibiting fascinating artifacts and rare examples of money the likes of which you may have never seen before.
