The Bank recognizes that people want to use images of our bank notes for both educational and commercial purposes.
For advertisers and other commercial users, our Policy on the Reproduction of Bank Note Images must be respected, and you must obtain the Bank’s written permission. To do so, send an email to email@example.com which includes the following information:
We will normally reply to requests within 2 days.
The Bank may, at its sole discretion, consent to the reproduction if there is no risk that the resulting image could be mistaken for a genuine note or misused by counterfeiters. Another key consideration is that the proposed image must not tarnish the dignity and importance of bank notes to Canadians or the reputation of the Bank.
Permission is not required for film or video productions showing a general indication of currency and where there is no danger of images contributing to counterfeiting (e.g., for a television commercial).
The Bank will not approve requests to produce promotional coupons or vouchers bearing any likeness to a Canadian bank note. These could be mistaken for genuine notes, and/or diminish the importance of bank notes to Canadians.
We provide an extensive gallery of bank note images from which you may download images.
