Canada replaced Asian on back of new 100-dollar note (B375a)


According to several newspaper articles including one in the Winnipeg Free Press dated 18 August 2012, the back of the Bank of Canada’s new 100-dollar note design originally depicted an Asian woman scientist, but the image was revised to show a Caucasian woman prior to issuance of the note. The change was made in response to concerns from focus group participants about the stereotyping of Asians as excelling in technology.
