Can a non-resident get a credit card in Canada?

Rounding it up

  • There are a variety of different types of credit cards available to non-residents and newcomers.

  • These cards include secured, prepaid, and store credit cards, as well as mainstream ones from large banks.

  • It may be smart to sign up for a card if you frequently travel to and from the country — you should first check whether there are any fees or requirements.

  • If it makes sense for your situation, take advantage of the benefits of a Canadian-based card and start building your credit history to help with your future in the Great North.
