Is it safe to check my CR?

[ Edited ]

My most recent CapitalOne CC monthly statement was just updated this afternnon. I am curious to see how my new balance has improved my FICO, is it safe to order my credit score now?

 

Also does anybody know if TransUnion score's are still relevant in Canada or is Equifax FICO the only score we now use in Canada?

Answer to my own question:

 

Hopefully this might help some one some day, i spoke to Equifax Canada and they said it takes 2 weeks for them to update your score, even if the credit card company reported the new $0 balance today.

Wow, even slower than in the US.

 

I have no info on which CRA's are currently active in Canada. Sorry! With luck, someone else knows.

In my experience, Equifax usually takes between 3 and 6 days to post the information that they receive. Sometimes quite a bit longer.  :smileytongue:
