The Bank of Canada will begin circulating the new $20 bill, Canada's most widely used bank note, on Wednesday, 7 November 2012.

A ceremony to officially issue the new $20 note, which pays tribute to the contributions and sacrifices of Canadian men and women in all military conflicts, and features the Canadian National Vimy Memorial on the back of the note, will be held at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.

Joining Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney to speak at the event will be the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance , the Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Veterans Affairs, and Mr. David Houghton, President of the Vimy Foundation.

At the conclusion of the event, members of the media will have an opportunity to meet with experts to find out more about the theme and various security and durability features, and to purchase a $20 new polymer bank note.
