Obverse: Portrait of Sir Henri Charles Wilfrid Laurier (1841 – 1919), known as Wilfrid Laurier, was the seventh Prime Minister of Canada from 11 July 1896 to 6 October 1911. The engraving of Wilfrid Laurier was created by Yorke, made from the photo of 1906, taken by photographer William J. Topley. Arms of Her Majesty The Queen in Right of Canada at left. Denomination in numerals are in all corners.
Signatures: Governor of the Bank of Canada (Gouverneur) - Gerald Bouey; Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada (Sous-Gouverneur) - R. William Lawson.

Reverse: Fishing industry in Canada - Commercial salmon fishing boat (Salmon seiner BCP 45 - Fishing trawler) in the Johnstone Strait, a channel along the northeast coast of Vancouver Island. The vignette on the reverse was based on a photograph by George Hunter and engraved by George Gunderson and Yorke.
As a magazine photographer, George Hunter was looking for the elusive combination of light and angle that makes a good shot. What he captured, in a single photo taken in Johnstone Strait in 1958, was the essence of the coastal fishing industry. in the foreground, a white, wooden-hulled seiner worked a set; behind, a fleet of similar vessels bobbed in the water under tumbling coastal mountains. it was beautiful and it was BC. Hunter knew he had a keeper as soon as the image emerged from the darkroom tray. others who saw the elegant photo thought so, too. The picture enjoyed a decade-long, self-propelled career that saw it splashed across calendars, the cover of the Star Weekly and, finally, Canada's five-dollar bill.

The $5 banknote was first circulated in December 1972, and was printed by CBN. An updated version was issued in 1979, for which the serial numbers were moved to the bottom centre of the reverse and the central obverse guilloché was modified.

Scenes of Canada, 1969-1979 Series
Scenes of Canada was the fourth series of banknotes of the Canadian dollar issued by the Bank of Canada. It was first circulated in 1970 to succeed the 1954 Series, and was replaced by the Birds of Canada series beginning in 1986.
The design process for this series began in 1963 with a primary goal of creating banknotes that were more counterfeit-resistant than the 1954 Series it was to replace.
   Each denomination retained the dominant colour of the respective banknote from the 1954 Series: green for the $1 banknote, orange (terracotta) for the $2 banknote, blue for the $5 banknote, mauve (purple) for the $10 banknote, burnt orange (red) for the $50 banknote, and brown for the $100 banknote. Because of the multicoloured tints used to complement the design for each banknote, Bank of Canada staff began referring to the series as the "multicoloured series".
   Initially, all denominations were to feature the portrait of Elizabeth II, but portraits of former prime ministers were used for some denominations at the request of Edgar Benson, the Minister of Finance in 1968, to "reflect Canada's burgeoning national identity". The vertical borders of the obverse were curvilinear, the left edge of which had "multicoloured diamonds" bordering a circular frame within which was the Coat of Arms. It also featured "sweeping guilloch√©" patterns.

Fishing industry in Canada
Canada has one of the world's most valuable commercial fishing industries, worth more than CAD $5 billion a year and providing more than 120,000 jobs to Canadians. It is the economic mainstay of approximately 1,500 communities in rural and coastal Canada.
Commercial Fishing - Lake Winnipeg
The Manitoba commercial fishing industry that comprises over 3,600 fishers who produce 25 percent of Canada's freshwater catch. Lake Winnipeg is the biggest contributor of commercially landed fish species. Of the 13 fish species commercially harvested, pickerel (walleye), Sauger, lake whitefish, northern pike, and yellow perch are the most highly valued species. Others include white sucker, tullibee, carp, burbot, lake sturgeon, Goldeye and white bass.

Fishing trawler
A fishing trawler, also known as a dragger, is a commercial fishing vessel designed to operate fishing trawls. Trawling is a method of fishing that involves actively dragging or pulling a trawl through the water behind one or more trawlers. Trawls are fishing nets that are pulled along the bottom of the sea or in midwater at a specified depth. A trawler may also operate two or more trawl nets simultaneously (double-rig and multi-rig).
There are many variants of trawling gear. They vary according to local traditions, bottom conditions, and how large and powerful the trawling boats are. A trawling boat can be a small open boat with only 30 horsepower or a large factory ship with 10,000 horsepower. Trawl variants include beam trawls, large-opening midwater trawls, and large bottom trawls, such as "rock hoppers" that are rigged with heavy rubber wheels that let the net crawl over rocky bottom.
