Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs)

What is a GIC?

A GIC (Guaranteed Investment Certificate) is a safe, low-risk investment that works similarly to a savings account. You deposit money into a GIC account, and that amount earns interest over time. The difference is, a GIC requires you to leave the money in the account for a specified period of time (a term). Terms range from 1 year to 5 years. The longer your term, the higher the interest available for you to earn. Upon completion of your term period, you receive the entire sum that you deposited, plus your earned interest.

GICs Have The Following Benefits:

  • Peace of mind knowing that your interest rate is guaranteed and your principal is safe and secure.
  • A range of terms to fit your investment needs. All funds are reinvested in our community as loans and mortgages.
