I have been looking at Secure Credit Cards for Canadians, because I want to restablish my credit. The following banks have secure credit cards, please note these are for Ottawa area, but perhaps they are available in all Canadian cities. I plan on going with CS-Coop. The following do secure credit cards: Canada Trust-$5,000 minimum Cs-Coop-$500 minimum CIBC Visa-$500 TD (Toronto Dominion)-do not now how much, just seen the banner on their bank advertising it yesterday. Please note, CS-Coop, you do not have to be a civil servant to join. Also, if you open an account and have your paycheques automatically deposited, you get an credit line of $1000.00. I plan on going with CS-Coop, I know someone else who did and after a year (check this out maybe longer) you can also apply for a higher line of credit. I hope this helps someone.
