So the Bank of Canada is a shareholder in The Mint. The Mint casts coins for the Bank of Canada... but they also cast coins for other countries as well, about 10-15 countries a year. http://www.paymentssource.com/news/dispelling-the-myths-of-canadas-mintchip-3017114-1.html

I think the decision to stop making pennies had to be a collaborative effort really...
