Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs)

A GIC is a low-risk investment that functions similarly to a savings account but has a guaranteed rate of return for a specified term. With the highest interest rate offered for the selected term, it provides a competitive return on your investment, with the option of automatic renewal at maturity to simplify the process of extending your investment.

With terms available from one to five years, you can select a duration that aligns with your financial goals. The minimum investment is accessible, with $500 required for adults and a more affordable option of $100 for youth under the age of 18. These features make this product a versatile and accessible option for a variety of investors.

Member benefits of GICs:

  • Peace of mind knowing that your interest rate is guaranteed
  • A range of terms to fit your investment needs
  • All funds are reinvested in our community as loans and mortgages
  • Invest in CAD or USD funds
