Pace, an Ontario credit union, has an offer for new money only for 3 years at 3.51%. Best 3 year rate I have seen recently. DICO insured.
GIC is RRSP and TFSA eligible.

Details of this and other preexisting promos @ https://www.bankwithpace.ca/termdeposits351/

What is the current status of Pace, after having been under administration by DICO due to governance issues.

Pace was a high roller with interest rates last year, then there were reports of irregularities, following some acquisitions made by Pace.

Can Pace CU be trusted?

This article about Pace was written in October. No other published details appear to be available. I suppose if one is concerned about Pace's future, one should contact DICO for an update. The governance issue had to do with the president and CEO ( a father and son) being placed on administrative leave. Don't know what precipitated this. DICO began operating the company at that point.

Presumably, if DICO is running PACE, through Guy Hubert, then they and he think this GIC is a viable product - good for members and for business.

The thing is that any GICs up to $250000 are protected by DICO anyways, so not much risk here. Maybe some minor inconvenience if it all goes bad, but probaby unlikely.
