CREDIT AND CREDIT SCORE IN CANADA
A QUICK GUIDE
Setting yourself up for financial success in Canada
Many newcomers in Canada are unfamiliar with the concept of building credit history, monitoring personal credit scores, or even using a credit card for everyday purchases. Having a comprehensive understanding of how credit works is crucial to being debt-free and setting yourself up for financial success in Canada.
The first step to get the ball rolling towards your credit score is to open a bank account. The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) supports Arrive, and with a 150-year commitment to newcomer success in Canada, we are uniquely positioned to be able to help and support newcomers, like yourself, with credible and authentic resources to guide and inform your financial journey in Canada.

With must-know information about the five Cs of Credit in Canada: Character, Capital, Capacity, Collateral, and Credit, the Arrive credit guide is an incredibly useful resource for any newcomer!
