Frequently Asked Questions

What is a GIC account for students and how does it work?

GIC stands for Guaranteed Investment Certificate.

A GIC account is basically an investment account. With respect to International students going to study in Canada, a GIC account acts as proof of funds or show money as it is called in common parlance. Students would have to deposit a fixed amount of money in this account (CAD 20,635 + CAD 150 or CAD 200) before coming to Canada. This is proof that the student has money to manage their expenses after reaching there.

Once in Canada, a first-time amount of say CAD 4127 CAD to 6190.5 CAD (this figure depends on the GIC bank) would be released to the student’s bank account from the GIC account. This is to cover the student’s initial expenses in Canada. Apart from this, every month the student would receive 1,204 CAD to 1,376 + interest, to meet their monthly expenses from the GIC account. After 12 months, the student would have received back their 20,635 CAD GIC investment with interest. This is how a GIC account for a student works.
