Hello, I came across MCAN Mortgage Corp ( for the first time today.

They offer mortgages and (of relevance to this forum) GICs ranging from 1-5 years. They are based in Toronto, and term deposits are CDIC eligible.

IMO, their rates are competitive, with a 5-year GIC at 2.8% (less than $25k) and 2.9% (more than $25k). All interest is compounded annually.

I was wondering if any of you had experience with this company, or know anything about them that might be helpful?

Thank you

I just came across them today too through my investment broker.

MCAN Mortgage Corp 1 Year 1.25%

Not too shabby. Seems to be CDIC insured. Any catches? Can an individual deal with them directly or do they always require a broker? What is the difference?

One can contact them and ask. Their phone and e-mail are on their Term Deposits FAQ page.

MCAN will need to confirm identity, as required by anti-money laundering laws. That could be a challenge to dealing with them directly if one can't visit their office in Toronto and they can see that the photo ID and the applicant match.

Current one year rates:

Term (years) $5,000-$24,999 $25,000-$99,999 $100,000+
1 1.20% 1.25% 1.30%
