What you Need to Know About Credit Scores
Your credit report is a detailed breakdown of your credit history, provided by one of Canada’s credit bureaus, Equifax or TransUnion. Your credit report is like your financial report card. It shows when you’ve been granted credit, for things like a new mobile phone, or a personal loan. Your credit report also contains personal information, a history of your trades and accounts and any derogatory marks.
Credit scores are calculated by weighing various factors from your credit report, you can learn more in the Ultimate Guide to Credit Scores. The core factors that make up the Equifax scoring model (provided by Borrowell) include:
