5 year GIC Rates - January to August 2022

Five year GIC rates have had a lot of action these past few months. With the Bank of Canada’s interest rate announcement next week (September 7th at 10am), I thought it would be timely to look at the five year GIC rates for all the financial institutions that WhatBank tracks for the period from January 1st to August 31st 2022.

The median five year GIC rate on January 1st was 2.15% and 4.72% on August 31st.

Be sure to check out WhatBank’s new credit card finder. It graphically shows the value that you get from your credit card, takes taxes and fees into account when you choose to use the card for flights, and even shows you what happens if you don’t pay off your card in full each month.
