​Business term deposits

Make your money work as hard as you do


Redeemable term deposit

Save with confidence and have the flexibility to cash out or reinvest anytime

Redeemable term deposits, also known as Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs), are a safe investment that give you the freedom to withdraw some or all of your funds before the term ends. They give you the option to earn more interest on money you don’t need for day-to-day operations.

  • Features
    • Flexible term options
      Various term lengths with options to cash out or reinvest early
    • Interest
      Calculated daily, paid monthly or annually
    • Low minimum deposit
      Invest as little as $500

Non-redeemable term deposit

Invest with confidence and lock in funds to earn a higher rate 

Non-redeemable term deposits are a no-risk investment option since they offer a guaranteed way to earn interest on your principal investment. Terms deposits are a smart way to add to your business savings strategy.

    • Flexible term options
      Short and long terms available, from 30 days to 5 years
    • Interest
      Calculated daily, paid annually or at maturity

Market-linked term deposit

Get the best of both worlds — security of a term deposit and growth potential of the stock market

Market-linked term deposits are a great option to diversify your business savings strategy. They offer higher growth potential since the rates of return are linked to the stock market. Performance of the S&P/TSX 60 Index*, which tracks Canada’s 60 foremost companies of the Toronto Stock Exchange across 10 industry sectors, determines how much interest you’ll earn.

  • Features
    • Flexible term options
      Choose between 3-year or 5-year terms
    • Interest
      Higher growth potential based on market performance
    • Minimum deposit
      Invest as little as $1,000
    • Guaranteed principal
      ​Your initial investment is 100% guaranteed
