Look at the hologram in that clear plastic window on the bills every time one is accepted for payment.The clear window should have the denomination of the bill in the hologram and the holographic picture of the face on the bill.The fake $50 and $100 bills have the number 5 on them and not the correct $50 or $100 denomination number.There may be a slight ridge along the clear plastic window where the plastic has been spliced together.The major indicator, however, is the number in that polymer strip. Look for the correct number to match the bill.

Police also suggest visiting the Bank of Canada for additional anti-counterfeiting security features on Canadian currency, like the $50 bill and $100 bill.
