What to have on hand before you apply

  • Your Social Insurance Number (SIN)
  • If applicable, your co-applicant’s SIN, date of birth, employer’s name and phone number
  • Monthly expenses such as rent, mortgage payments, alimony, etc.
  • Assets including bank accounts, investments, vehicles, real estate etc.
  • Liabilities including car payments, loans, credit card debt, etc.

Once you submit your completed application, our experts will follow up within one business day based on your contact preference (phone or email) to confirm the application was received and to discuss next steps. From start to finish, we can set up your loan, get your signature and answer any of your questions without having you come into a branch. Of course, if you prefer to connect with us in-person at any time during the process, we have over 20 locations. And we love a good conversation!
