Credit Karma has announced its plans to expand its business to the Canadian Market. Credit Karma also has plans to expand the rollout to include many of the company's features and tools that enable consumers to take informed, proactive steps toward understanding and improving their financial situation.
For the first time ever, Canadians will have free online access to their credit score and full credit report, updated as often as once a week. They will also receive personalized recommendations from Credit Karma on how to best manage their everyday finances. The launch aims to arm Canadians with the knowledge of where they stand financially, as Credit Karma firmly believes everyone deserves to understand their finances. "Since our founding nine years ago, many Canadians have asked for Credit Karma, which made selecting Canada as our first market outside of the U.S. a natural decision," said Credit Karma Founder and CEO Kenneth Lin. "We're thrilled to assist Canadians in making smart financial choices by empowering them with the knowledge of their financial standing. We're putting people first when it comes to information and services that promote financial progress."
