Personal Loans. As the most common loan type, personal loans are credit provided based on an analysis of your credit history and income, and do not require you to use assets such as your home or vehicle for equity. We focus on these smaller loans, which can be used to fund a wide range of personal expenses.
Life can pile up on you pretty fast. You could be moving into a new home, needing a new car, getting married, filling a cavity, and traveling overseas all in the same year. Even the dullest stretches can be thrown into chaos by an unexpected emergency. And then, before you know it, your chequing account is a pack of gum away from overdraft.
There’s no reason for Canadians to live this way. Even if you have poor credit or you don’t have a credit card, you still have options. Magical Credit specializes in personal loans for people with less than perfect credit history!

A personal loan is another word for an unsecured loan. Traditionally, most large loans are secured, which is to say that the borrower must put up some kind of collateral as a guarantee that they will make a full repayment. A mortgage, for example, is a type of secured loan in which your house serves as your collateral.
With an unsecured loan, a lender is relying primarily on the borrower’s word that they will make repayment. This is why most unsecured lenders will take a careful look at your credit history to determine whether you have proven to be responsible and trustworthy with your finances in the past. It’s also why personal loans tend to have much higher interest rates than secured loans.
At Magical Credit, we believe in giving those with iffier credit histories a second chance to access credit and rebuild their financial reputations. While we do not approve all applications (see conditions below), we are one of the most accessible lenders in Canada.
In this section, you’ll find all of the information you might desire about how our online application process works, and what you’ll need to complete it.
Who Can Qualify for a Magical Credit Personal Loan
Unlike a lot of lenders, we have a pretty short list of qualifying criteria for prospective applicants:
If you meet these minimum criteria, your chances of securing a Magical Credit loan should be quite high!
Our Personal Loan Application Process
If you haven’t done so yet, plug your desired loan amount and repayment timeline into the calculator on this page. Once you’ve settled on a number you’re comfortable with, you can apply.
You’ll be asked to provide some basic information, such as your SIN, address, and current monthly rent/mortgage. All of this information will be kept completely private, and is intended only to verify your identity and evaluate your application. Once you’ve created an account with us, you will also be asked to provide proof of income and direct deposit status.
The entirety of the application takes only a few minutes, and once you’ve signed off you will be notified of your status within one business day. If you have been approved, you can expect your money to be deposited into your account immediately (plus any processing time on your bank’s side).
“I need a loan but I want to know what my monthly payments are going to look like” - Use our personal loan calculator to find out!
Nope! Our personal loans are unsecured, meaning that they rely purely on your personal qualifications. In fact, many borrowers turn to us for a source of cash when the equity on their home and other assets has already been maximized. This means you won’t risk foreclosure on a significant asset if you run into trouble making repayments, but it also means you will have a higher interest rate to manage each month. There are trade-offs to any loan!
You can! With Magical Credit, for example. While a bad credit score does mean you will likely have to pay a higher interest on any loan you take out, it will not prevent you from accessing financing. One smart way to think of your Magical Credit personal loan is as part of a strategy to improve your credit rating. Successfully repaying a debt is the surest way of building a healthier score.
As noted earlier, all you need to qualify is a regular source of income that is directly deposited into your bank account. Provided you haven’t defaulted on a prior cash loan, you will most likely be approved.
Magical Credit offers loans ranging from CAD $500 to $20,000. We offer repayment periods of 6 to 60 months.
No problem at all! If at any point over the life of your loan you are able to pay more than your agreed-upon monthly payment (up to and including the entirety of your remaining debt), you are completely free to do so. You will only have to pay the interest that has accrued on your loan to date—anything extra you would’ve owed had you paid more slowly no longer applies!
Your interest rate will vary based on a number of factors. These include the amount you are borrowing, the duration of your repayment schedule, and your personal credit history. Magical Credit’s base interest rate ranges from 3.4% to 20%.
For an example of how this might apply to your situation, consider the following. On a $1500 loan with a 12 month repayment period and a 3.4% interest rate, you would owe $199.05 per month. There is also a one-time standard $194.00 standard administration fee applied at the outset of your loan. Therefore, the total repayment amount on your $1500 loan would be $2,388.54.
We would recommend not letting this happen! Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate any requests for extensions or stays on your monthly repayments. Failing to make a payment could seriously affect your ability to access a future loan from Magical Credit and other lenders.
It’s for this reason we insist on all of our clients having their income regularly direct deposited into their bank account. If you can be certain of the day your income is coming in, and the day your loan repayment will be withdrawn, it’s much easier for you to manage your commitments.
Speed of sound. Speed of light! Very quickly, is what we’re trying to say. Once your loan application has been approved, we send over your money more or less immediately. Occasionally the client’s (your) bank will take its time processing the fund transfer, but in general, if you need your loan to put out an immediate fire, you can rely on us to provide the water in short order.
Well, we’re better. That’s the short version. The (slightly) longer version is that our interest rates compare quite favourably to the hefty costs associated with most credit card cash advances.
Of course, we are a bit biased here! We strongly encourage you to take a close look at the terms your credit card offers before proceeding, and to choose the financial option that provides you with the best arrangement for your needs.
Our loans are considered short-term loans and have up to a 6-60 month term with an interest rate ranging from 3.4%-20% per month.
Example: $1,500 borrowed for one year at 3.4% per month. Monthly payments are $199.05. Total payback with interest and fee of $194.00 is $2,388.54.
NOTE: You can pay off your loan at any time with no penalty. You will only pay interest up to the date you pay it off.
