Canada invites citizens to participate in design process

The Bank of Canada has announced that Canadian citizens are invited to participate in the design of future banknote series. From the website:

"The Bank of Canada today announced that it is inviting Canadians to comment on the principles that guide the design of the country’s bank notes.

The consultation, which will take place until 10 November, is a way for Canadians to contribute in an unprecedented way to the design of future bank note series. Canadians can participate in an online survey by visiting our Principles for Bank Note Design web page. The Bank will publish a summary of the comments received before the end of the year.

The consultation stems from a review the Bank conducted for the process used to select, develop and design the visual content for the Polymer series of bank notes. The review concluded that Canadians should have increased participation in the design process for the next series.

The Bank wants to include Canadians’ input at every stage of the design process. This consultation seeks to solidify the foundation upon which the visual content - theme, subject matter and images - will be developed in the future.

The Bank will also benefit from Canadians’ ideas on how images can respect these principles.

When the Bank begins work on the next series, it will again seek input from Canadians."
