Canadian Bank Note Company

The Canadian Bank Note Company is responsible for printing the paper currency of Canada. It also prints and provides document reading systems for identification cards, lottery tickets, stamps and notes for other countries, and many other security-conscious printing-related services. They are well known for their passports, driver's licenses, and other important documents for various nations and jurisdictions around the world.

Until 1923, CBN was a unit of the New York-based American Bank Note Company. It is currently based in Ottawa, Ontario.

In recent months, the Canadian Bank Note Company has been the chief-provider for the machine readable passports within the Caribbean Community bloc of countries. The majority of the new 'CARICOM passports' as they are called serve the union as a centre-piece of promoting easy travel within the Caribbean Single Market and Economy (CSME).
