I don't see any change to CTFS website re rates: https://www.myctfs.com/Rates/

Currently lists the following.

High Interest Savings* 1.55%

GICs** (Rates effective 2021-06-03)
1 Year 0.50%
2 Year 0.75%

Tax Free Savings (Rates effective 2021-06-03)
Tax Free High Interest Savings* 1.55%
1 Year Tax Free GIC** 0.50%
2 Year Tax Free GIC** 0.75%
3 Year Tax Free GIC** 0.85%
4 Year Tax Free GIC** 0.95%
5 Year Tax Free GIC** 2.04%

Do people really buy GICs at these rates?

I'm confused ! No idea what this article is about. As LK said, there is no rate change in their web site: https://www.myctfs.com/Rates/

I can't see anywhere, besides the first post in this thread, the Canadian Tire Bank GIC rate for 1 year is 2.3%.

Can anyone confirm whether this is indeed the case?

That 2.3% rate was true 2020-03-23, but has since dropped to 0.5%
