I have asked several people in various Canadian Tire locations why Canadian tire money is no longer being given when people pay in cash.  The stock response is that "we have stopped issuing it because of COVID". 

When I ask whether they plan to resume issuing physical scrip after COVID is under control, they have no answer.  Have we seen the last of Canadian Tire money?

I have also noticed that some locations give you a 5 cent refund on your receipt instead; is his their way of compensating cash paying customers due to the lack of physical Canadian Tire scrip?  If so, why don't all locations do this?

I have received no response to my queries from anyone at Canadian Tire.  Has anyone else tried to write to them?

Personally, I think Canadian Tire Money notes may be discontinued, but they may have been considering replacing the banknotes with a card in which digital cash is added for some time before the pandemic.  If true, the pandemic likely accelerated Canadian Tire to make the change.
