What are Construction Dollars?

  • are printed in denominations of $5, $10, and $20

  • are only valid for use in the year printed on the construction dollar; and,

  • are printed by a 5-digit serial number and holographic image (to prevent counterfeits)

$1.00 Canadian= $1.00 Core Area Construction Dollar



The goal of this program is to encourage people to visit and support local businesses in the Core Area during construction.


The OEV BIA will be distributing the Construction Dollars through social media giveaways and participating business will be doing promotions and/or giveaways to distribute the dollars.
