Credit Scores & Canadian Immigration

Back to learn

Does your credit score matter for Canadian immigration?

Rounding it up

  • Credit scores have little to no impact on the immigration process.

  • That’s because your credit score from your home country—good or bad—won’t carry over to Canada.

  • Establishing a strong credit history is nevertheless important once you arrive in Canada.

  • You can start forging great credit by securing a credit card and using it wisely, taking advantage of reliable credit building products, and practicing caution to avoid credit card fraud and identity theft scams.
