The Canadian ten-dollar note (CAD 10) is one of the most common banknotes of the Canadian dollar.
The current CAD 10 note is purple, and the obverse features a portrait of Viola Desmond, a Black Nova Scotian businesswoman who challenged racial segregation at a film theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, in 1946.
The background of the portrait is a colorful rendition of the street grid of Halifax, Nova Scotia, including the waterfront, Citadel and Gottingen Street, where Desmond’s Studio of Beauty Culture was located. Foil features on the note face include both the Flag and Coat of Arms of Canada. This is the first Canadian banknote to feature neither a prime minister nor a royal in its solo portrait, and the first to feature a solo female Canadian other than Queen Elizabeth II.
The reverse features the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Part of the background pattern mirrors the museum’s interior architecture and its ramps connecting multiple levels. A foil eagle feather is prominent, symbolizing ideals such as truth, power and freedom. A quotation from section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms appears in both English and French.
The foil window at the base of the note includes an iridescent rendering of the Library of Parliament’s vaulted dome ceiling, which can be seen from both sides of the note. The vertical CAD 10 note entered circulation on November 19, 2018.

The West Block of Parliament’s original construction was completed in 1865 and the building opened in 1866. The West Block’s most distinctive tower is depicted on the $5 note. The Mackenzie Tower is named for Alexander Mackenzie, Canada’s second Prime Minister (from 1873–1878). Designed by Thomas Stent and Augustus Laver, the tower was erected over the West Block in 1878, capping a new wing added to accommodate the needs of the growing public service.
The portrait of Sir Wilfrid Laurier (Prime Minister, 1896-1911) is based on a photograph from Library and Archives Canada. Laurier was elected to the House of Commons in 1874. He remained a Member of Parliament for 45 consecutive years and was leader of the Liberal Party for 32 of them. Laurier was Canada’s first francophone Prime Minister. He was a master in the art of constructive compromise and a passionate advocate of national unity. His governments promoted national development and expansion, encouraging immigration from Europe and the United States to Western Canada; supporting the construction of a second transcontinental railway; and overseeing the incorporation into the country of two provinces, Alberta and Saskatchewan, as well as the Yukon Territory.
