New to Canada Mastercard® credit card program

Welcome to Canada!
And start building Canadian credit

Being a newcomer to Canada is challenging. You need to find a place to live, set up a bank account and register for public services. And you have to build a Canadian credit score.*

Servus Credit Union can help you get started. We now offer a New to Canada Mastercard® credit card program to immigrants or foreign students who need credit.

To qualify for the New to Canada program, you must:

  • Have a valid Canadian government-issued temporary immigrant work or study permit (IMM 1208 or IMM 1102)
  • Have valid government-issued identification, including a driver's license
  • Apply in person at one of our branches

As part of the program, you can choose from several credit card options:

Having a Canadian credit score will help you:

  • Buy the goods and services you need
  • Apply for a loan, insurance and certain jobs
  • Qualify for lower interest rates

For more details, get in touch with us today.
Call 1.877.378.8728 or visit a branch.

*Your credit score from your home country doesn’t transfer to Canada. Even if you had a good rating, you'll need to build credit again.
