Was on the site looking around and noticed the GIC rates dropped.
The one year was 1.65% and the five year is now 2.05%.

Additionally, e-savings along with TFSA interest rate is down to 1.60%

Identical rates at Peoples Bank

I guess I got in under the wire. I just opened accounts with People's Trust in mid August. It took them a while to actually open the accounts. I sent a cheque through SecureShare on August 16th and when I didn't hear anything, I called them at the end of August. They honoured the rate which was 1.9% for a 2 year GIC but wouldn't backdate the GIC, however they gave me that extra interest ($70) and placed into my e-account. So far, I am happy with them. But I need more institutions to invest in as my have a large GIC coming due and I am maxed out at EQ, Oaken, and now People's. Any suggestions?

Depending on the length of term you are considering.....

Some suggestions would be Concentra , Wealth One, Maxa, as well as calling some deposit brokers for unadvertised specials...example GIC Wealth Mgmt etc.

Sometimes one of the ethnic credit unions will give a higher rate for a substantial deposit when the request is relayed by the local manager to their head office.

Depends on term. Personally, I feel the rates have about bottomed out for most FIs. You likely don't want long term right now, but you may want the flexibility to cash a GIC for a better opportunity in the future. Hubert's 1 year cashable GIC comes to mind. It gives you an "OK" rate, compounded quarterly interest and is cashable. Also unlimited Manitoba CU deposit insurance.
There are no terrific options out there right now that I am aware of.

The first three months: 1.55%*
Months four to six: 1.65%*
Months seven to nine: 1.75%*
The last three months: 1.85%*
