Secured Credit Card Application
If you need to re-establish your credit, a Secured Credit Card is a great way to get started.
If your goal is to eventually qualify for a mortgage, we recommend getting a Secured Card with a $2,500 limit, if possible. If that is not possible right now, you can start with a $500 limit and then eventually increase that limit over time by making additional security deposits to the lender.

How the Secured Visa Credit Card Works
The Home Trust Secured Visa Card is a credit card that requires a security deposit for eligibility. Your credit limit is then set at the amount of the deposit. You can put down as little as $500, or as much as $10,000.
If you decide to cancel your card, you can just pay off your outstanding balance, and you'll get your security deposit back from Home Trust. Home Trust is a Member of Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) (1-800-461-2342).
The application process is very simple and almost everybody is approved! Of course, if your application is not approved, your security deposit will be immediately returned to you.
When your application is complete, please mail your security deposit (personal or personal certified cheque, money order or bank draft from a Canadian Financial Institution, payable to "Home Trust Company") to:
Home Trust Company
