Transfer Credit Score from Tourist to PR

Discussion in 'Canadian Finance and Taxation' started by vbertalan, Mar 13, 2018.

  1. Dear CanadaVisa Forum,

    I was in Canada a while ago, with a tourist visa. I opened a bank account, and had a credit score.
    Now, I became a PR. Do I transfer my previous credit score as a tourist to my new credit score as a PR? If so, how?
     
  2. Your credit score is not tied to your residency status and should not be affected. Don't worry about the change in your SIN #, the system is automated as far as I know and tracks many other things including your name, addresses, bank accounts, credit usage, etc...you should have no issues.
