New GIC interest rates:
1 year 2.60%
2 years 2.70%
5 years 2.80%
Good experience dealing with them.
Yeah, Stephen (Nehpets) really likes them, and has dealt with them in the past. Those are among the top GIC rates, so they're back being competitive again.
Also, Omnia Direct is one of the CU divisions in Ontario that accepts out of province residents despite their signup form saying they are limited to Ontario only. Multiple residents from Alberta have had no problems opening memberships with them. No questions asked. In one case, the Omnia Direct representative told the customer they welcome out of province residents, but just don't advertise it.
On that basis, I would have no problem with adding Omnia Direct to the GIC chart as they now top the GIC chart leaderboard. Peter, can you create a profile page for and add Omnia Direct to the GIC chart?

Yes, my experience with Omnia has been very positive, with helpful and knowledgeable CSR's. Sometimes the phone is answered by one of the executive personnel as well.
....Do they provide registered GIC? I live in Alberta. I would assume I will need to mail out the cheque?
Omnia online only services are bare bones, and I do not believe they offer registered GIC's as opposed to their parent WFCU Credit Union
