How To Apply For Credit.

Some credit cards are great for making purchases, while some offer deals for balance transfers and others offer travel rewards or cash back.

Once you find the right card, don't forget to check the eligibility criteria. Every credit card provider is looking for different criteria, so this will give you some idea of whether you're likely to be accepted or not. Remember, you need to be at least the age of majority in your province or territory of residence in order to be eligible to apply.

You'll then need to fill out the application form (just remember, lying on your application form is considered fraud) and submit to a credit history check. If all is well, you'll get your card shortly after!
