How does a GIC work? Simply put, it's like lending your money to an institution for a term that you determine when you initially sign a contract.

At maturity, you get back all the money you “loaned”, plus predetermined and guaranteed interest. This play-it-safe option rules out the unexpected.

 



The basics

What do I need to consider?
 

The more you invest, the better the rate of return.

Bonus! We progressively increase interest rates on investments over $10,000.1

Like a loan, your investment has a term that you choose with your advisor when signing a contract.

The longer the term, the more attractive the return rate.

These funds are then invested until the end of the contract, unless you choose a redeemable GIC. Just make sure you don’t have any plans for this money until then!

You have 2 options with a traditional GIC:

  • Redeemable GIC for the choice to make an early withdrawal. 2
  • Non-redeemable GIC for a more attractive rate, but you’ll have to wait until the maturity date to get your investment back.
