I will be moving to Montreal in couple of months from Boston. I already have a Scotia credit card with me. Should I start building my credit history by making some purchases here and there. Will it be helpful in any way when I land like rental agreements etc. Any other suggestions.

I don’t think it’ll help that much in terms of raising credit scores. Most landlords accept US credit history if that’s your main concern.

If you have Amex in the US you can transfer your account and points to Canada

Can anyone pleased advise on how do you open a bank account or credit card domiciled in Canada while living US?

Contact the bank

Have you ever stopped pursuing a job at a company because of your experience with the recruiter? My friend recently met with a recruiter who tried to convince her to apply for a Manager position instead of a Sr. Manager position and “get promoted into the Sr. Manager position in one year”. It takes at least a year and a half to get promoted, the recruiter lied to her! This is a red flag to me and I am thinking of advising my friend to go after the role at a different company.
