Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A GIC (GUARANTEED INVESTMENT CERTIFICATE)?

A guaranteed investment certificate (GIC) is a security issued by a financial institution certifying that a certain amount of money (i.e. the deposit) has been invested at a certain interest rate for a given period or time (i.e. the term) and will yield a specific amount (i.e. the final return). Terms can range from as little as 30 days to as long as 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- or 5-years. Typically, your money is ‘locked-in,’ which means you don’t have access to it until the GIC matures. Depending on the GIC, you may be paid interest on a monthly, semi-annual, or yearly basis or upon maturity. Upon maturity, you receive your deposit back in full.

ARE MY GICS INSURED?

GICs are protected by either Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) to a maximum of $100,000 per Bank or Trust company or Credit Unions covered by provincial insurance up to $250,000 for each of the following categories:

  • Deposits held in one name
  • Deposits held in more than one name
  • Deposits held in a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)
  • Deposits held in a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF)
  • Deposits held in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA)
  • And others, please visit How deposit insurance works – cdic.ca for more details
