Canadian chartered bank notes

Canadian chartered bank notes

The Canadian chartered bank notes were paper money issued between 1817 and 1944 by private Canadian banks known as chartered banks.

Notes were issued in a variety of different denominations, including 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 40, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 dollars. After 1871, the smallest denomination allowed was 4 dollars, raised to 5 dollars in 1880. Until 1935, the chartered banks were the only source of larger denominated notes for circulation in Canada. In 1935, the bank of Canada began issuing a full range of denominations. Issues by the chartered banks were prohibited in 1944.

The following is a list of banks and the periods during which they issued notes. The end dates are the final dates appearing on notes, which may have circulated for some time after.
