Build Your Credit

The first step to getting a mortgage in Canada is to build your credit rating.

A strong credit rating will help you get a better mortgage rate, which could save you thousands of dollars in interest charges over the life of your mortgage.

Here's a list of activities that will help you build your credit:

  • Apply for, use and pay off a credit card each month;
  • Pay for your bills in full and on time, including rent, utilities and telecommunication services;
  • Apply for small loans from your bank and make regular payments;
  • Prove that you have a consistent source of income, by staying with the same employer for an extended period of time.

If you don't have a strong Canadian credit rating, you can also use your rating from a Commonwealth country, such as the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia.
