About Us

Our Story

By 2012 our president, Scott Satov, had spent two years trying to build an online mortgage brokerage to make it easier for Canadians to find financing for their homes online. A couple of years into the project, it became clear to him that there was a large number of Canadians searching for loans online who had nowhere to turn to for financial help.  At that time there was no visibility on the options available to many Canadians with credit issues, and most of these consumers were relying too heavily on payday loans and getting stuck in a cycle of debt they couldn’t get out of.

Scott brought on Cris Ravazzano as Chief Technology Officer and they set out to provide Canadians with a new way to find the loans and financial products they were looking for. On July 1, 2012, Loans Canada was born: the country’s first and today’s largest online loan search platform. 

Cris Ravazzano Basement Office
Our first office

Our idea was launched in Cris’ home basement, in the west island of Montreal. We started small, focused on creating a user-friendly platform and insightful educational content for our users so that they could make better informed decisions about their finances. Over the years we have continued to develop our technology, hired new staff that share our mission, expanded our product suite and today we are headquartered in Toronto. However, one thing that has stayed constant is our focus on providing our users with reliable financial resources.

Loans Canada Board Room

Initially, our goal was to provide consumers with a more affordable and manageable alternative to payday loans. We now offer dozens of products to Canadians all across the country with a particular emphasis on those who are dealing with credit problems. Our loan search platform allows a consumer to search for the products they want, compare lenders and service providers, and leave comments and ratings to help future borrowers make the right choices.
