If you’re currently a resident of British Columbia, Magical Credit accepts a wide variety of income sources from the federal (Canada) and provincial (British Columbia) governments. We also consider fixed private income, such as monthly payments for pension or insurance.
Below is a compilation of the most common types of government income received by people who live in British Columbia. Each of these types of income can qualify for a cash loan from Magical Credit, if you meet our other requirements. Depending on the amount of your monthly income, we will approve you for a loan between $500 and $20,000.
Please note that this list may not include every type of government income available in British Columbia. We accept most types of fixed government income that are received on a monthly basis. If you are unsure if your British Columbia government subsidy or fixed monthly income qualifies you to receive a cash loan from us, please call us at 1-855-639-6888.
Magical Credit serves Vancouver, Surrey, Burnaby, Richmond, Abbotsford, Coquitlam, Kelowna, Nanaimo and all other towns in British Columbia!
Welcome! We are Magical Credit, a lending company based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We offer customers financing from Vancouver to St. John’s, and most points in between!
We specialize in providing cash loans to British Columbia clients with bad credit or no credit at all, helping to fill in the gaps that traditional lenders have long ignored. Established in 2014, we are committed to changing the way Canadians access financing. We do this in three ways:
Simplifying the application process
Expanding the pool of eligible applicants
Reducing processing and approval times
Making repayment agreements as direct and transparent as possible
Getting you your money quickly
If you’ve been looking for a financing solution for Vancouverites (or Victorians, or Abbotsfordians etc.) that cuts out all the extra hurdles and lets you get back to living your life, we invite you to give Magical Credit a try. Continue reading to learn how the voodoo we do works, as well as for a quick FAQ and some suggestions for how you might put your loan to good use!
With other lenders, this section would either be several thousand words long, or have so much fine print to read you’d likely end up blowing part of your new loan on new eyeglasses. With us, there’s not a lot to it—which happens to be our main selling point.
Here’s what you need to apply for a cash loan from Magical Credit:
As we noted earlier, Magical Credit’s home office is in Toronto, but thanks to our unique online application system we can easily offer loans in Vancouver, Kamloops, Coquitlam and everywhere else in British Columbia. The entire application process is conducted through our website, and typically takes less than five minutes of your time!
That’s literally all you have to do! From there we’ll review your documents to ensure you’re a good candidate for a Magical Credit cash loan, and you’ll hear back from us within—wait for it—one business day. (Not a long wait, eh?)
While we do our due diligence on every application and do not approve candidates we do not believe will be able to meet their repayment obligations, our goal is to make financing as accessible as possible. That means giving those with bad credit the same chance to get help as everyone else. If you believe a short-term loan will make a difference in your life, we invite you to give us a spin. Before you do, feel free to try our repayment calculator below to get an idea of what monthly payment you can expect.
By and large, one thing about our clients is consistent: they are seeking cash loans to expand the limits of what their financial picture allows them to accomplish. If your finances are stable enough to safely take out and repay a loan, it may be time for you to dream a little bigger!
Magical Credit offers loans to residents of Ontario, Alberta, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Yukon and… British Columbia! (It’s very cosmopolitan of us, we know.)
So yes, if you meet our qualifications (which can be found under “How It Works” on this page, or elsewhere in the FAQ) as a resident of BC, you’re very much welcome to work with us.
Courage, good looks and charm.
Actually, those are just bonuses. Really, all you need is a monthly source of income which is directly deposited into your bank account. As we noted earlier on this page, this could take the form of employment wages, fixed income (such as a pension) or a government subsidy (such as Employment Insurance [EI]).
So long as you haven’t previously defaulted on a payday loan, your chances are quite good at landing financing with us.
We view ourselves as such, yes. While we, like payday lenders, specialize in short-term cash loans, we offer more client-friendly interest rates and repayment structures.
We strongly recommend only taking out a loan if you have a high degree of certainty that you will be able to make good on your repayment commitments. While we are sympathetic to unforeseen challenges, we must insist that all payments be made on time each month. We do not offer extensions or exceptions. Failure to repay your loan will have a negative impact on your credit and may affect your ability to get a loan in the future.
Applying for a cash loan will affect on your credit rating. Successfully paying off your loan, however, will help you build up your credit score and increase future lenders’ confidence in your ability to manage your finances.
Your exact interest rate will vary based on amount borrowed, and the duration of your loan agreement with us. They can range from 3.4% to 20% per month.
Here’s an example of what that might translate to for you:
If you borrow $1,500 from Magical Credit and agree to pay it back within 12 months at a 3.4% monthly interest rate, your payment each month will be $199.05. Over the life of your loan, you will pay back $2,388.54 (including the initial $194 administrative fee charged on all loans).
Remember, you always have the option of repaying your entire loan balance at any time without penalty.
Our maximum cash loan is CAD $20,000.
Yes, we have no grudge against Surrey residents. For that matter, folks from anywhere in BC, be they in Vancouver, Kelowna, Abbotsford or Coquitlam are welcome to apply. Yes, including Victoria. Yes, including McBride. When we say anywhere we mean anywhere!
Yes. Although we specialize in loans to applicants with bad credit or no credit, we will check your history to get a sense of your financial background, and to see whether or not you have defaulted on past payday loans.
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.
