As usual in Canada since the 1970s, new series are not released all at once but gradually. The new $10 bill was released about two years ago. They're now thinking about a new $5, but the design has not even been chosen.

CBC News ─ Bank of Canada to make new $5 note, seeks public input on who should be on it

What Canadian historical figure or personality should be featured? Any preference?

My wife said, put Celine Dion on the banknote. She is amazing.
I'm just a collector of coins, not a slave to it, unless I am in a coin shop.

​Ah! Ah! Ah!

I have bad news for her: One of the requirements is that the person must be dead.

That is good and bad news for her.
Bad. Cannot be on this new banknote. Would be truly gutted
Good. She is still alive. I expect she is truly happy with that.

Aaaah ─ I'm sure they'll get a lot of submissions for Neil Peart!

In the very unlikely event he were chosen, I imagine his face shown in ⅓ profile with the drum kit in the background on one side and a four-line quote from his lyrics on the other. What would be a good four line quote for this purpose?

​if the dream is won
though everything is lost
we will pay the price
but we will not count the cost

Appropriate for a banknote!

I saw rush live in 97 and 07, but my vote would be for someone even more famous: Sir Timothy Horton

I suspect it will be a social activist, not an artist.

I just hope the Bank of Canada will not take its inspiration from the $20/$20 programme of the RCM and come up with a Superman¹ $10 note ...

Anne of Green Gables or Mere D'Youville?
I love coins, both old and precious and also change coins. If its round and shiny, it will garner my interest. I also collect stamps and have an abiding interest in History, Archaeology,  and Social Issues.  I also worship the musical god Prince.
