Ontario is home to Canada’s national capital, Ottawa, as well the country’s most populated city, Toronto. Roughly 40% of Canada’s population lives in Ontario. Located to the south of the province is Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes, five bodies of water which, when combined, makeup 21% of the world’s freshwater supply. Right between the border of Ontario and New York State are the famous Niagara Falls, some of the most impressive waterfalls on the planet. In fact, collectively, Ontario’s abundance of freshwater rivers make it a major spot for hydroelectric power.

The Ontario province is also the origin place of numerous Canadian-born celebrities, such as Drake (Toronto), Alanis Morissette (Ottawa), Deadmau5 (Niagara Falls) and the beloved rock band, The Tragically Hip (Kingston). Unfortunately, it’s cities like Toronto that make the province one of Canada’s most expensive places to live, which is where loans can come in handy.

Loan Tips

Taking out a loan in Ontario is a serious financial decision, one that must be carefully considered before you sign on the dotted line. To help you through the process and make your decision a little bit easier, here are our top loan tips.

  • Work to improve your credit score before you apply for a loan. Depending on the loan product you’re interested in, your potential lender in Ontario may check your credit. Having good credit can increase your chances of getting approved.
  • Keep an eye on your debt-to-income ratio. Taking on too much debt is never a good idea. Always make sure your debt-to-income ratio is less than 35%. To calculate your ratio, figure out how much your debt is costing you per month, divide that number by your monthly income, then multiply by 100.
  • Ask a friend or family member to cosign for your loan. If you’ve been declined for the loan you need, consider asking a trusted friend or family member to cosign your application, someone with a better income/financial standing. A good cosigner can help those who are unable to get approved because of financial issues.
  • If the loan you’re being offered sounds too good to be true, it is. There are countless fraudulent lenders in Ontario looking to scam you out of your money. If you’re being offered a large loan with a very low interest rate, even though you weren’t even expecting to get approved, the deal is probably too good to be true.

How Can You Use Your Loan in Ontario?

Here are several different loan types that may fit your financial situation:

Read this for some information about short term loans in Ontario. 

Increasing Your Chances of Getting Approved

While getting approved for a loan in Ontario isn’t always guaranteed, there are lots of things you can do to increase your chances of getting approved.

  • Choose the right lender for your financial situation. There are many lenders in Ontario that will work with anyone, regardless of their credit or financial standing, and there are many lenders that have stricter lending guidelines. It’s important that you choose the lender that is right for your unique needs.
  • Make sure your documentation is in order. More often than not, a lender will need you to provide them with certain personal and financial documents. To make sure you don’t hold up the process, ask what they need in advance, then, have all required documents organized and ready for inspection.
  • Pay down any other debt you might have. Carrying too much debt can be detrimental to anyone’s finances. If you have too many maxed out credit cards or can’t afford to make the payments on any loans you already have, you should consider waiting before you apply for a new loan.

Protecting Your Personal Information

Whether you have good credit or bad credit, whether you’re looking for a small loan or a large loan, it should always be your number one priority to protect your personal and financial information. It’s up to you to take the necessary steps to make sure your private information stays private. Here are a few steps everyone should take to protect their personal information:

  • Never share your PINs or your passwords
  • Never give your debit card or credit card to anyone else, even a friend
  • Remember that no major bank or legitimate financial institution will ask for your personal information over the phone, by mail, or online (unless you initiate the process by contacting their services)
  • Check your credit report at least once a year to make sure that all the information within is correct

Dealing With Fraud in Ontario

Even those who are careful with their personal information can fall victim to identity thieves and loan scammers in Ontario. These types of criminals will do anything to gain access to your personal and financial information. They certainly don’t discriminate. If you’re currently dealing with loan fraud or personal identity fraud, please contact all of the following institutions:

  • Your Bank
  • Your credit card companies
  • Local police
  • Both credit reporting bureaus (Equifax and TransUnion)
  • Any organizations that might have provided someone with your information or credit accounts in your name
  • The Ministry of Consumer Services of Ontario for help and more information

FAQs

Can you get a loan with bad credit?

  • Yes, Canadians with bad credit can still qualify for a loan. Unsecured bad credit loans may be paired with higher interest rates, but consumers can still opt for a secured loan such as a car title loan to gain access to lower rates.

Will applying for a loan hurt my credit score?

  • If the lender performs a hard pull of your credit, yes your credit score will go down a few points. But it will recover over time. The most important thing is to make sure you don’t have too many hard pulls within a short period of time.

Can I pay off my loan early?

  • Yes, some lenders will allow you to settle your account early. Just keep in mind that you may be charged a prepayment penalty, which is typically a percentage of your remaining loan balance. Before you sign a loan contract make sure you understand the terms of your loan.

What is the difference between a secured and an unsecured loan?

  • A secured loan is backed by some form of collateral, typically an asset like a vehicle or piece of property. If a borrower defaults on a secured loan, the asset could be seized. An unsecured loan does not require collateral. The heightened risk of an unsecured loan may result in a higher interest rate, although this is usually a function of the applicant’s credit history.

How to tell if a lender is legitimate?

  • Choosing a legitimate lender can seem like a daunting task, but there are a few key factors to watch out for. For example, a legitimate lender will never ask for any form of upfront payment and should have many independent reviews you can look at online.

Can I transfer my loan to someone else?

  • Certain loans, for example, a car loan, can be transferred to someone else. But, a personal loan cannot be transferred.
