Looks like the Tangerine Bank 1-year US$ GIC at 3½% is the top.

Bank of Montreal 1-year US$ GIC is 3.05% via BMO InvestorLine.

Bank of Nova Scotia 1-year US$ GIC is 3% via Scotia iTRADE.

I stashed mine with Tang for a year. The 3-yr for 3.95% was also mighty tempting.

Another feature that I have used at EQ is transferring from my EQ USD account to my son’s account in a U.S. bank via Wise on the EQ login. The fee is 72 cents regardless of the amount transferred. I use Agility and RBC accounts to exchange funds and then transfer from RBC to EQ.
With EQ you can transfer to anyone’s account in the USA. Cheaper than a cheque and a stamp.  

Thank you for this wonderful information maGIC , I have a USD with EQ bank and Also want to transfer my USD funds outside canada but for some reason I can only transfer via exchanging CAD to USD!!!! or CAD to USD !

It seems that whenever i try to use wise to transfer funds in my EQ platform it requires me to do it as an exchange !! could you please help. I'm I doing something wrong?

I would urge you to exercise some caution, when transferring to your son's account. IIRC, when you create an e-link at most banks, there is a declaration whereby you state that the account, for which you are creating a link towards, is actually in your name. If the receiving account is in your son's name, you may technically be in violation of the bank terms and conditions.

No pre-authorization is required to deposit funds, automatically or in-person, to someone's bank account.

The agreement one signs with an employer is an agreement to accept salary owed as a direct deposit instead of a paper cheque.
