Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau officially unveiled the bill in Halifax with the assistance of Desmond's sister, Wanda Robson, who noted, "Our family will go down in history - in history, imagine that".

The Bank of Canada hid a digital easter-egg in its website displaying the new $10 bill, which was revealed on Thursday in Halifax and features Canadian civil rights icon Viola Desmond.

In addition, the law stresses the importance of its role in the civil rights movement in Canada.

"Viola Desmond carried out a singular act of courage", said Isaac Saney, a senior instructor of black studies at Dalhousie University. She died in 1965, but received Canada's first-ever posthumous apology and pardon in 2010.

"I say thank you, thank you, thank you", Robson continued.
