Toronto, Ontario – November 6, 2008: Strategic Information Technology Limited (“SIT”) is pleased that the Financial Post has commended Canadian Tire Financial Services’ strategy to attract roughly $500-million in customer-deposited GIC accounts.
"We’re happy when any one of our business partners is recognized for their achievement,” said G. Robert Leeming, President of SIT, “but are especially glad when the term deposit capability of Portfolio Plus plays such an important role in enhancing their performance.

Canadian Tire Financial Services began in 1961 as a small financial service company offering third-party credit processing for local retailers. Over the next two decades Canadian Tire Financial Services provided support in the form of credit-processing facilities for the expanding, nation-wide network of Canadian Tire stores.
In 1995, Canadian Tire Financial Services became the first non-deposit taking, financial institution worldwide to launch a MasterCardTM called the Options MasterCardTM.
