WINNER: The Best Credit Card for Building Credit in Canada

Do you have damaged credit, or lack sufficient credit history in Canada? A secured credit card can be a great, low-risk way to build your credit. These cards often require a deposit to determine a pre-set limit, which controls spending and limits risk. They report to credit bureaus as you pay down your balance, strengthening your score over time.

With no annual fee, the National Bank MC1™ MasterCard® takes top spot in RateSupermarket.ca's Best of Finance 2015 Building Credit category.
