The screenshot was inaccurate. Those quoted current rates are for *registered* accounts. I cross checked our rates comparison chart and their website. Therefore, I am not sure the new rates are meant for (i) non-registered, (ii) registered or (iii) across the board.

motus normally gives a slight bonus for registered, about 5 bps. Therefore, seems strange that they would promote non-registered rate, esp in RSP season.

In any event, they are not very impressive rates, but thanks for bringing it to our attention.

The rates are effective February 1st

I got the email right from motus so I'm sure it will be accurate by February 1st

Link from email: View all upcoming rate changes

While not very impressive, these are changes in the right direction.

From Alexandre's link, the following rates seem definitive. Registered rates are 5 bps higher than non-registered, as usual.
Actually, what these rates are relatively good for is RIFs. Most of the FIs offeirng better rates don't offer RIFs.
