2019: A Year In Review

2019: A Year In Review

Written by Cris Ravazzano
Last Updated November 29, 2021

Loans Canada – the country’s first loan comparison and learning website, was launched in the summer of 2012. Since then, a lot has changed both with our platform and in the online lending industry as a whole. Today we thought we’d take a moment to look back at 2019 and at some of the new features and resources we’ve added to our platform – features and resources that hundreds of thousands of Canadians trust each month.

Canada’s Loan Learning Center

We’ve continued to expand our learning resources this year (we published more than 400 unique pieces of educational content!) with our active blog and consistent news updates, new learning guides, and an ever-growing lender review platform. This is always a work in progress for us, and we aim to continue to provide the best learning resources to help Canadians make better borrowing decisions today and tomorrow.

New Partnership Programs & Best-In-Class Widget

With the launch of our affiliate program and partner widget, searching for financing is more accessible than ever. Today lenders, brokers, bloggers, and pretty much anyone with a website or online presence can seamlessly connect Canadians with the many credit services we offer.

With a simple copy-and-paste, our loan search widget is the only one of its kind in Canada that enables other websites to offer our lender-matching technology to their audience, allowing users to search for loans, car loans, mortgage products, debt relief, business financing, credit building, and other services on third-party platforms.

New Products

We’re happy to have increased our service suite with three new product launches this year:

More Transparency

When Loans Canada first launched, borrowers had to submit an application before seeing lenders and other financial options available to them. In an effort to bring more transparency to Canadian borrowers, we’ve opened up our lender database for all Canadians to see. Now users can visit Loans Canada to compare lenders, openly share the experiences they’ve had with lenders, and help others make better borrowing decisions.

Nevertheless, Canadians can continue to apply with Loans Canada to satisfy their financing requirements. Our application portal boasts the largest lender network in the country and can help Canadians of any credit find financing solutions for their credit needs. By submitting a single application, we can connect users to a series of alternative solutions to choose from, helping users save time and money in their search for their financial solution.

Our Biggest Year Ever – Thank You!

Hundreds of thousands of Canadians have applied for loans, debt relief, mortgages, and other services on Loans Canada this year alone, while as many visit our website each month to learn more about loan options or to get debt management tips and credit building advice.

Thank you for continuing to trust Loans Canada and we look forward to helping fellow Canadians with their borrowing needs in 2020, and into the future. We have a lot more planned for next year, so stay tuned!
