Suppose parents or grandparents want to set aside money for a child. Or suppose a minor child (under age 18 or 19 depending on the province) receives a significant inheritance, or has part-time or summer job earnings that you think should be put away to grow, perhaps for higher education or an eventual house purchase. The money will be safe in a bank account but not earning much. GICs are also safe but grow slowly.

How to protect your savings from the ravages of 5% inflation
That old bogeyman of the 70s is back again – inflation – now running at 5.3% as measured by the retail prices index (RPI).  Some of us can remember when inflation hit a record high of 26.9% back in August 1975, having been in double digits from November 1973 when it stood at 10.3% right through to January 1977 when it fell to 9.9%. If you were working during that time your wages probably went up roughly in line with rising prices. But as always, it was pensioners and others on fixed incomes who suffered and it was high inflation in the seventies that forced the government to produce Index Linked National Savings Certificates – ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
