6 The CIBC free credit score service is a feature in the CIBC Mobile Banking App which allows CIBC clients to subscribe to get their credit score from Equifax Canada through Borrowell, our third party service provider.
The Equifax credit score is based on Equifax’s proprietary model and may not be the same score used by third parties or by CIBC in certain instances to access your creditworthiness. The provision of this score to you is intended for your own educational use. Third parties and CIBC will take into consideration other information in addition to a credit score when evaluating your creditworthiness.
You should always obtain the most updated credit information and scores from Equifax Canada to ensure accuracy before making a major financial decision.
