Establishing Credit

For information on any questions or issues regarding your credit, book an appointment with the financial institution of your choice to discuss your financial needs.

Tips for Establishing Credit:

  • establish a chequing account with a financial institution, bank, or credit union
  • establish utlities in your name and pay on time (water, hydro, gas, etc)
  • always pay your monthly bills (water, hydro, gas, phone, etc) on time
  • apply for a credit card (MasterCard, Visa, etc) and always pay the balance monthly
  • apply for a consumer/store credit card and always pay the balance monthly
  • finance a vehicle, but only if you can receive a favourable interest rate. Do not finance a vehicle if you only qualify for financing with high interest rates.
  • purchase a home
