Credit Report Application

TWO CREDIT REPORTING AGENCIES OPERATE IN CANADA

There are two principal credit reporting agencies operating in Canada, TransUnion, and Equifax. Creditors report to these agencies, and in turn, utilize the information these agencies compile to assess credit worthiness of their existing and future customers. There is a constant exchange and updating of information provided to the credit agencies on a monthly or a periodic basis, which is added to each individual’s credit profile.

 YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO ACCESS AND RECEIVE FREE CREDIT REPORTS

Under Canadian law, you have a right to access this information and request free credit reports from these agencies.
