Government Bonds

Government of Canada bonds are issued by the federal government and are among the most secure investments available. They are backed by the full faith and credit of the government and timely payment of the principal and interest is guaranteed.

Government bonds offer the following features:

  • Safety – These bonds are direct obligation bonds of the federal government and are secured by the government's ability to levy and collect taxes.
  • Income – You will receive interest payments twice a year.
  • Liquidity – You can sell a Government Bond at its market value on any business day.
  • Price changes – While the amount of your interest will almost always remain the same, the value of your bond will change daily.
