Currently, Sir Wilfrid Laurier is featured on the $5 bill.

Canada's central bank is planning to release a new $5 note, and it wants input from Canadians on whose face should be on it.

Currently, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Canada's first francophone prime minister who governed from 1896 to 1911, is featured on the $5 bill. 

Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz said they want Canadians to nominate any historic Canadian; someone who is truly "banknote-able."
