Lines of Credit

Looking to borrow with a sense of flexibility or want to fund multiple purchases? A Meridian line of credit could be right for you.

  • Comfortable with a variable interest rate that fluctuates with prime
  • Alternative to credit cards, with much cheaper rates
  • Revolving – as you pay your balance, the money you pay back can be used again
  • You only need to apply once
  • Repayments can be as low as the monthly interest and if you don’t use it, you don’t pay
  • Access your line of credit anytime, anywhere (online, ABM, in-branch or telephone banking)

There are four lines of credit to choose from:

Secured: Use your assets (the equity in your home or cottage, deposits held at Meridian, or mutual funds) for a secured line of credit and take advantage of a lower rate than an unsecured line of credit. Secured credit lines often have higher limits, as the credit line is tied to the value of your assets.

Unsecured: An unsecured credit line is available whenever you need it and can help manage unforeseen expenses or fill a gap when money is tight. Limits can be as high as $50,000.

Student: For a college or university education, help cover your living or education costs (in Canada or abroad) with this credit line. While you’re in school, you only pay interest.

RRSP: Need help making your RRSP contributions? An RRSP line of credit helps you save for your retirement by providing you with access to funds to make your annual contribution and allows you to pay your balance down as quickly as you want. You can even use your tax return to help pay down the balance faster!
