No matter what happens in the stock market, you are guaranteed the return of your principal when your deposit matures. Available for terms of 3 or 5 years. RRSP, RRIF and TFSA eligible. Avoid mutual fund manager fees and commissions and similar products offerred by the banks that often cap your return at 10%.
