* CDIC limits apply. Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) is a federal Crown corporation that protects your deposits for up to $100,000 per insured category at financial institutions that are CDIC members. Coverage is free and automatic – you don’t have to sign up.

**Fixed-term GICs are non-redeemable prior to the Maturity Date.

The Early Redemption fee is $20.00 plus foregone interest. For more information, please check our Account Terms and Conditions for Savings Accounts and GIC Investments.

*** For GICs with a term of more than one year, interest is compounded on each anniversary date of the GIC and then paid on the maturity date. For terms of one year or less, simple interest is calculated and paid at maturity. Rates are subject to change at any time. GIC confirmations are sent by email to clients. GICs renew automatically unless the customer provides instructions to the contrary, which requires the customer to call the Wealth One Call Centre at 1.866.392.1088. These instructions may be provided up to 10 days after the renewal date. The issue date of the GIC is the date on which funds are received by the Bank. See Account Terms and Conditions.
