I was talking to a Hubert rep tonight, and they said that there is a rate notification coming out tomorrow (Dec 1). The non-cashable 1-year (current 5.55%) and 2-year (5.65%) are apparently both going to 5.75%.

The cashable quarterly 1-year rate is supposed to be unchanged at 5.20%, so they are continuing to increase the gap between that and the standard 1-year - now 55 basis points.

The FHSA announcement is coming December 11.

They asterisked the two savings accounts, but I think that's a goof, the rates (3.60%, 3.65%) are unchanged.

Thanks for the heads-up, NorthernRaven !

It's good to see another FI adding FHSAs to their offerings.

I'll pass the word onto my Son.

I don't think Access likes the quarterly redeemable GICs that they inherited from Hubert. I predict that they will become slowly more uncompetitive so that holders naturally progress out of them over time (while avoiding a mad rush to the exits), and when it is thinned out enough, they will be converted to a fixed term (with lots of notice) or bounced out to the HISA at maturity.
