Best GIC Rate Canada

Shopping for the highest GIC rate can be time consuming and difficult. If you are looking for the best GIC rates online, you may find some high GIC rates, but then may not be able to actually buy the GIC if you are out of province or not comfortable buying online. Using a deposit broker for your GIC purchases will ensure you always have access to the best GIC rates in Canada and a simple, safe and secure process to buy those GIC’s.

GICdirect finds the best GIC rates in Canada from its extensive network of financial institutions that consistently offer some of the highest GIC rates in Canada. The GIC rates we offer are typically 1% to 1.50% higher than your local retail bank. Our GIC’s are all covered by deposit insurance either federally or provincially, so your money is completely safe and secure. Whether you are in Victoria or Halifax or somewhere in between, GICdirect has a location near you that will provide you with the best GIC rates and an office location for you to make your purchase.

Another major benefit in using GICdirect to purchase your GIC’s is you will have access to many financial institution’s GIC rates from other parts of Canada that you would not normally be able to purchase. GICdirect will manage all your maturing GIC’s and let you know in advance when they are coming due so you will never miss a GIC maturity. Most major banks require that you contact them with instructions prior to a GIC maturing, otherwise the bank will just renew your GIC for the same term and not at the highest rate! That will never happen to you as a client of GICdirect. You will always be able to get the highest GIC rate when your GIC comes up for renewal.

GICdirect thru Monarch Wealth GIC Services Inc., offers an online platform to access your statement for all your GICs from every financial institution we deal with, in an easy to read, concise format. These statements show the amount purchased, the GIC rate, the term, the start and end dates, and the GIC maturity amount.
