What is a GIC?

A guaranteed investment certificate (GIC) locks away your savings for a fixed term. We guarantee the safety of your original investment and you earn interest at a fixed rate.
Image

How does a GIC work?

You tell us how much you want to invest and for what term. You’ll start earning interest on your GIC once your investment funds are received. Then, when your term is up, your funds are available to you.
Image

Are GICs a safe way to invest?

Your money is safe with us, and protected by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC). They're a great option if you want to put some money away for a few years and be sure of its return.

What if I don't have a Wyth account?

It only takes a few minutes to open an account, which you’ll use to fund your GIC purchase. Fund your account using one of our convenient options, and when the funds are available, you can buy your GIC.

How do I buy a GIC?

01

Open a HISA

Before buying a GIC, you first need to open a HISA and have the funds available in it for your GIC purchase. The HISA acts as an operational account to fund and manage maturity of your GIC.

02

Move money to the HISA

Move money to the HISA using Interac e-Transfer® or by linking your external account at another financial institution and making a transfer. Interac e-Transfer® is the fastest way to fund your HISA – you’ll have access to these funds within about 30 minutes – but there’s dollar limits per transfer. You can transfer larger amounts from your linked account at another financial institution but there will be a 7-day hold on these funds.

03

Purchase your GIC

Once the money is clear of the hold, you can make your GIC purchase.
