Your credit score is a measurement of the potential risk that you represent to lenders. A high score means that you are low risk. A low score means that you are high risk. You “earn” your score based on whether or not you pay your debts on time.

There are a few different ranges that your credit score can fall into:

  • 300–579: Poor
  • 580–669: Fair
  • 670–739: Good
  • 740–799: Very Good
  • 800–900: Excellent

Your credit score is a numerical value representing the potential risk of lending to you, while your credit rating is a lender’s assessment of your history with them. Your credit rating is assigned both a letter (indicating the type of credit used) and a number (indicating how promptly you paid off the debt). The letters used are as follows:

  • I (Instalment)
  • O (Open line of credit)
  • R (Revolving credit)

The numbers next to the letters range from 1–9. Having 1 indicates that you always pay on time and 9 indicates a bad debt or an account that has gone to collection.

Your credit report contains all of your personal information (date of birth, social insurance number, addresses, employment details, etc.) and other facts pertaining to your credit history. This includes transactions from credit card companies, cell phone companies, banks, and any other lenders with whom you’ve had an account.
