WOW ... those 3, 4, & 5 year rates are even better than the GIC Brokers rates, right now ❗

I've never invested in a GIC through my discount broker before (TD WebBroker). In the past they were always a bit of a joke, compared to what I could get elsewhere. I guess it's past time I look into it again.

Thanks for the Heads-Up, Norman.

P.S.
I just checked the GIC rates for the same issuers
that Norman mentioned above , through my
TD WebBroker account. The rates there are not
Quite as good ... but they're Very close!

Can those rates be viewed without being a Scotia iTRADE logged in client?

I don't know of a way to view Scotia iTRADE's bond and GIC offerings without logging in.

BMO Investorline offers same or slightly higher rates than TD WebBroker as BMO carries more issuers and, at times BMO and/or its affiliates sometimes chooses to offer higher than market rates.

Looks like 3 Bank of Nova Scotia affiliates have chosen to offer higher than market rates for 3, 4 & 5 year GICs.

It's the same with TD WebBroker.

To see their GIC rates, etc., you have to have an account with them, and be logged in.

I'm guessing it's the same with most (if not all) discount brokerages.

Are these rates also available for RRIF's and LIF's? If yes, can they be "broken" to make the minimum mandatory annual payout?

The best I can tell, the rates at discount brokers are generally independent of account type though GIC minimums might vary by account type. I don't know what each discount broker's process would be to ensure minimum annual payment but I can imagine there would be at least an administrative cost (or penalty) to 'break' something.

Quite frankly, it probably is up to the account holder to manage their accounts to be sure they meet legal minimums. After all, a discount broker is technically only an 'order taker'. It is not the discount broker's job to babysit DIYers.

I “was” an iTrade customer and you have to logon. I cancelled my accounts but they left me with the ability to login still. Kind of idiotic but that’s what they do when you cancel your account. I left because of their low GIC rates. If I can see the rates , I will post here.

The GIC's are regular GIC's that can be held in their regular, TFSA, RSP, and RIF accounts.

They are not special RIF GIC's that provide early access to accrued interest or principal for RIF payments. So, one will need to manage the liquidity required for the RIF withdrawals and any source tax withholding on those withdrawals.
