Series $100 note



Signatures: Left - P. Jenkins
Right - D. A. Dodge
Portrait: The $100 note portrait and watermark are of Sir Robert Laird Borden, Canada's prime minister from 1911 to 1920. Borden led the country during the First World War and successfully promoted Canadian interests during the treaty negotiations that followed it. In the realm of international affairs, Prime Minister Borden enhanced Canada's diplomatic reputation and status as a sovereign nation.
Background: Looks like the Parliament Library


Theme: Exploration and Innovation

The themes of exploration and innovation are illustrated with images of Canadian achievements in cartography and communications. A map of Canada created by Samuel de Champlain in 1632* is paired with a birchbark canoe. There is a satellite image of the country and depictions of Radarsat-1 (a satellite) and a telecommunications antenna.

An excerpt from Miriam Waddington's poem, "Jacques Cartier in Toronto," and its French translation by Christine Klein-Lataud, summarizes humanity's eternal quest for discovery.
