What is a Guaranteed Investment Certificate?

A Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC), is a savings option that guarantees the return of the invested principal amount along with additional interest. GICs require the lock-in of this initial investment for a set period of time, known as the GIC Term. In most cases, these funds cannot be withdrawn from the GIC account until the term matures. Many GICs also require a minimum deposit amount between $500 and $1000.
