Even if you’re carrying bad credit there’s no reason you can’t get approved for a loan if you live in or near Toronto.

Today, online services like Canada Drives makes it easier than ever to get approved for auto finance while its subsidiary, Fresh Start Finance, offers personal loans of up to $15,000 that can be e-transferred to your bank account within 24 hours! Furthermore, a loan from either Canada Drives or Fresh Start Finance can help you start building your credit score again.

The online solution for bad credit loans in Toronto

Having a vehicle in the GTA (or anywhere in Ontario for that matter) is very convenient; whether commuting to work, school, or zipping around as a rideshare driver. It’s a sprawling part of Canada with an unreliable public transit system. 

Getting approved for a car loan couldn’t be easier – you don’t even have to leave your couch! As opposed to stuffy banks who specialize in saying ‘no,’ a trusted lender like Canada Drives makes applying online convenient and stress-free. And better yet, Canada Drives specializes in bad credit situations; we believe everyone deserves a second chance.

Canada Drives is an award-winning company with a proven 10-year track record of helping credit-challenged customers get approved for auto financing. That’s a decade of putting drivers behind the wheel of their dream cars. Check out this testimonial from a couple of our happy customers:

And now Canada Drives has a personal loan sister company – Fresh Start Finance! You get the same trusted financing service as Canada Drives, and the same easy, online approval process.

Canada Drives was named Canada’s Best Managed Companies and one of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 in 2019, but even more important than those accolades are the near-perfect customer scores on review sites Trustpilot and feefo. It tells you this is a company you can count on.
