Is there a limit to the amount you can invest within a GIC?



Our response:

There is no limit to the amount you may invest in Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs). GIC deposits are eligible for coverage up to $100,000 by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) at each financial institution if deposited at a member bank of the CDIC . Be aware, if you hold more than $100,000 in GICs from any one financial institution, the excess amount will not be protected against loss. U.S. dollar GICs and GICs with terms longer than 5 years are not insured.
