How do I find a missing GIC?



Our response:

If your GIC has been unredeemed for longer than 10 years, you can search for it through the Bank of Canada’s Unclaimed Balances search. The Bank of Canada defines an unclaimed balance as “a Canadian-dollar deposit or negotiable instrument issued or held by a federally regulated bank or trust company that has been transferred to the Bank of Canada after it has been inactive for a period of ten (10) years”. This includes GICs, term-deposits, chequing accounts and savings accounts, to name a few.

If your original investment in the GIC was made less than 10 year ago, or is not found through the website, you may also want to contact your financial institution for more information on how to find your lost GIC.
