In November 2011, Canada will introduce a new series of polymer bank notes. The combination of polymer material and leading-edge security features makes these new notes not only hard to counterfeit and easy to verify, but also among the most secure in the world.

The Bank of Canada has produced this scenario-based video to provide police officers with information on how to verify the security features in bank notes and what to do with suspected counterfeits.


This video is an awareness level overview for police officers.
