Credit Cards For New Canadians

Back to learn

What should new Canadian residents look for in a credit card?

Rounding it up

  • If you’re a newcomer, consider applying for a credit card to build your credit history and earn rewards for buying the daily essentials.

  • It’s important to build your credit history in case you ever need to secure a loan for a big ticket purchase, like a car or home.

  • When picking a new card, focus on cash back rewards and low interest rates and fees when picking a new card.

  • Of course, ensure you stay on top of your credit card payments so you don’t find yourself in a pool of debt.
