They are but I am not going to be stuck on these rates honestly. I am still enjoying 3% - 3.75% with Meridian, Oaken, and Peoples Trust (Till 2023) and new money is going into the Market (Robo) as I am lazy and don't trust me in Trading (Greedy).

My worst saving account is Tangerine right now which is still not too bad comparing with the crappy interest rates (2.15%) which many got on this forum.

So far so good. I will start buying GICs when we again hit the 3-3.75% for 5 years (Maybe after a successful vaccine is in place and economy starts to truly recover).

Everybody is unique. My average yield is 3%. I will continue to buy 5 yr GIC's annually. My yield will gradually decline. I have no idea when an uptick in rates will occur. Have fun.

Fair enough. However, I don't recommend buying any 5 years now. The interest rates will start increasing as soon as there is a vaccine which might be anytime early 2021 (Hopefully).
