Here's a good one, as mentioned in a comment to an article on this site:

https://www.cannex.com/canada/english/depa/depa01.html

It's got more banks than the chart I have on this site:

Cannex also lists term deposit (GIC) rates for free:

Peter : I believe it is time to add Ally to your list for comparison. I would also like, as I am sure your new and/or old website followers would appreciate for the comparison chart to be in order from highest to lowest interest rate offered by these Institutions. It not only makes more sense but is easier to read. Hopefully you'll agree ! Time for the sub 1% to disappear. Thanks !

Have followed Cannex for over 5 years. In fact, I have consolodated all my savings between three institutions --- Achieva (consistently very good rates with full protection), ICIC (usually very competitive) and Canadian Tire (however, I am looking at moving away from them).

I will be replacing HSBC on the chart with Ally 🙂 Please see my thoughts on the ordering of the chart here.

hi Peter,

I'd like to see the chart more interactive, if at all possible, to allow the user to choose how to sort it. I agree with you that people need to look beyond rates and at the other features (such as service charges, surcharge-free ABM network access, etc.) so the default way it should be sorted is alphabetically by name. However, by making the chart customizable with the ability to sort (ascending or descending) by rate, TFSA rate or some other method, would be a nice touch.

As much as I like Coast Capital Savings and VanCity, because highinterestsavings.ca is national in focus, I question the rationale for keeping them both in the comparison chart. They're available only to B.C. residents whereas the Manitoba credit unions operate online institutions that allow any Canadian resident to open an account. Plus, their rates aren't much higher than HSBC's, which has now been removed. I really do think they should be removed from the chart.

Cheers,
Doug

Having just reviewed Vancity and Coast Capital websites , it appears that one must reside in British Columbia to be a member.

Peter , if I may , and not to be a pain in the butt ... but I am going to have to agree 100 % with Doug on this matter regarding their inclusion in your comparison chart. Tweeking the comparison chart is not a bad thing really. After all everyone gets to see and benefit from what a great job you are doing and have done Peter. Kudos !!!
