In an effort to publicise its new 10 dollar note, the Bank of Canada has hidden a Space Invaders-style game on its website.

On a page showing a 3D image of the new note, which features civil rights activist and businesswoman Viola Desmond, users can access the Inflation Busters game by clicking on the “spin” button multiple times.

Desmond refused to leave a whites-only area of a cinema in 1946 and was subsequently jailed, convicted and fined.

Her court case is one of the first known legal challenges against racial segregation brought by a black woman in Canada.

The bank note, released on International Women’s Day, is the first in Canada to feature a vertical design.

As well as a fun hidden game, the bank also celebrated the launch of the note by releasing a heartwarming video of Desmond’s sister getting a first peek of it.

In the video, Wanda Robson reacts with surprise at the new note, saying: “It’s beautiful… It’s as if she’s in this room.

“With this new 10 dollar bill, Canadians will be reminded how Viola stood up for her rights. One woman’s actions can really make a difference.”
