Ok so let's dedicate this to the North American peoples that have credit on both sides of the borders.

I'll use myself as the best example:

I was born in USA so I am naturally a citizen of USA, but because my grandmother was born in Canada, I legally obtained Dual Citizenship . So I am also a citizen of Canada.

I have lived in Canada for a year now and have built up my credit to a certain point. However I have 15 thousand in debt from the following companies:
President Choice financial.ca
and am considering moving back to America to go back to school and then get a job as a physical therapy assistant. This job most likely will be at a state government run hospital.

My credit in USA is perfect.

Will my bad debt from Canada haunt me in USA when I finally get my degree and want to get a job as a PTA?

Also, could my Canadian debt haunt me from if I did get the job could my wages be garnished? Or any personal items be repossessed?

Welcome to CreditBoards! We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free
    to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section.
    Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part! It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the bottom of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.

Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!

Kx3, I'm actually from Nova Scotia. Curious, where in Canada are you at? To answer your question, no. If they were to run a credit check, they will never know your credit history in Canada.

It'll hurt your Canadian score, unless the dentist finds out you moved to the States and gets a US collection agency after you. I'm pretty sure, however, that these forums are for the most part supposed to help people fix/build/get credit rather than how to rack up bills and skip out on them (such as the dentistry question).

Finally, in response to your first post, regarding your US credit being "perfect", do you mean you have no credit, or you have a perfect payment history?
