Your credit score is a number between 300 and 900 (the average in Canada is 749) and is based on various information throughout your credit report. This number is determined by a credit bureau, such as Equifax, and is used to determine your creditworthiness. Borrowell provides your Equifax Risk Score 2.0 – a popular and legitimate credit score used by many banks and lenders.
Your credit report is created by one of two credit bureaus in Canada, Equifax or Transunion, and contains detailed information about your credit history. It includes information about your credit inquiries (checks on your credit), your personal information, and your trades and accounts (mortgages, mobile phone accounts, etc.). Borrowell provides your Equifax consumer credit report.
Your landlord, credit card issuer, and bank all may want to know your credit score and see your credit report.
