Canada Savings Bond

Canada Savings Bond program no longer available

As of November 1, 2017, the Government of Canada has discontinued the sale of Canada Savings Bonds (CSB) and Canada Premium Bonds (CPB).

Like many Canadians, you may have used the CSB program as a short term saving method to put money aside for things like holiday expenses, special occassions, family or weekend getaways or other extra expenses. 

What this means for you

If you have recently purchased a bond or paid into a program through your work, your money is safe and will continue to earn interest. It will continue to earn interest until you redeem your bond or it reaches maturity, meaning it will not earn anymore interest and can be redeemed for the full amount.

If you own a bond that has matured, it can be redeemed at CUA or another banking institution. For more information about what the end of the program means for you, please visit this Government of Canada website or click here for Frequently Asked Questions.
