What is a GIC Account?

GIC means Guaranteed Investment Certificate and it's an investment account. This account is offered by a Canadian Bank. There are many different types of GIC accounts and GIC account for international students in Canada is one among that.

Students would have to deposit a fixed amount of money in this account (Usually CAD 20,635 + CAD 150 or CAD 200). This money is treated as proof of funds and would be released to the student every month for 12 months for their study abroad and maintenance expenses along with interest.

Opening a GIC Account in Canada

Opening a GIC Account is very easy. The first step is to decide which bank to go with. Choose one that has a wide network. Most banks have online application for opening a GIC account. Your documents such as Passport Copy and Proof of Enrollment etc needs to be submitted online. You can find more details here.

Will my GIC amount be refunded if my GIC application or Canadian Study Permit (Canada student visa) is rejected?

Yes, your GIC amount will be refunded in case your GIC application or Canadian Study permit is rejected or you withdraw from your course for any reason whatsoever.

For the refund process, you must contact the GIC bank and request a refund of funds.

The balance amount will be refunded to you after the deduction of any applicable fees by the GIC bank and the sending bank (ExTravelMoney does not charge any fees for refund).

The Processing Fee (charged by GIC bank, usually between CAD 150 to CAD 200) and the Wire Transfer Charge (charged by sending bank when transferring GIC amount from India and charged by GIC bank when refunding this amount) are non-refundable.

Also, when refunding the amount in CAD, the receiving bank in India will be getting the amount after conversion to INR at the Outward Remittance Sell Rate (lower than Interbank rate) applicable for the day.

ExTravelMoney.com is not responsible for any fees or charges levied by the sending bank, correspondent bank/intermediary bank, and the GIC bank. ExTravelMoney.com does not take liability for any foreign currency exchange gain or loss resulting from processing, transferring, rejecting and returning such funds.

The amount you finally get back after refund of your GIC funds may be different from the amount you deposited because of the above-mentioned charges and foreign exchange conversion rate.
