Some Older Canadian Bank Notes no Longer Legal Tender as of January 2021

Effective January 1, 2021, the Government of Canada will remove legal tender status from some older bank notes that are no longer produced—the $1, $2, $25, $500 and $1,000 notes. Here’s what you need to know.

Legislative amendments have been made following an announcement on legal tender in the federal government’s 2018 budget. These changes allow the government to remove legal tender status from the $1, $2, $25, $500 and $1,000 bank notes. 

Essentially, this means Canadians will no longer be able to use them in cash transactions. By removing these old notes from circulation, we can ensure that the bank notes used by Canadians stay current, in good condition, are easy to use and hard to counterfeit. For now, the government has indicated it has no plans to take any other bank notes out of circulation.  

These bank notes will not lose their face value, since the Bank of Canada will continue to honour them. People wishing to redeem their notes can do so at financial institutions or by sending them to the Bank of Canada. They can also decide to keep their bank notes.
For details on how to redeem bank notes at the Bank of Canada, please check their website.

In Canada, an average of 21 young workers dies each year. In Saskatchewan alone, young worker injuries are not declining FAST enough. On average, 3 young workers are injured EVERY DAY on the job. These heartbreaks and injuries CAN be prevented with proper safety training and education.

We are reaching out to YOU to help us raise awareness and take a safety leadership role by partnering with us for Youth Safety Education Day 2019 to keep the youth of our province SAFE at work! 


The Destination Employment program helps newcomers gain meaningful employment in Canadian hotels, giving them the experience they need to build a successful future in Canada.

This initiative is a win-win for both hoteliers and newcomers. Hoteliers are faced with an existing problem filling the job vacancies they already have, and newcomers need opportunities to find employment once they settle in Canada.

ABOUT US: A Long and Distinguished History

Archive Photo: Hotels Association of Saskatchewan Banquet, Regina, SK., February 19, 1935

Our history stretches back almost 80 years when a group of  hoteliers saw the need for a collective voice for the industry. Since then, the Saskatchewan Hotel and Hospitality Association (SHHA) has grown to become a highly respected, membership-driven organization that represents the hotel and hospitality industry to the Government of Saskatchewan, suppliers and the general public.

In addition to hotels & motels our membership includes, brew pubs, nightclubs, licensed restaurants, quick service restaurants and event centres.

The SHHA is overseen by a board of elected members representing designated zones throughout the province. The President and CEO carries out the duties of representing the Association’s position on issues as they arise. The SHHA is also active in promoting members’ interests to the Federal government through the Hotel Association of Canada.


What Difference Does it Make?

People ask what difference it makes if I join the Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association (SHHA)? The difference is we are a stronger voice that can advocate more effectively on your behalf. There is strength in numbers.

The SHHA has a reputation of being an extremely effective lobby and advocacy group because of the activities we engage in and the strength of our membership.  We are YOUR voice with government ministries, MLA’s and bureaucracy.

The hospitality industry gets “wins” when we work together. Keep the SHHA team strong by purchasing a membership in the Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association.

If you own a hotel/motel, restaurant, and bar or are a Retail Store Permitee, you should be a member of the SHHA.

Supporting the SHHA Keeps Your Voice Strong!
