Dave Baker, President of Newstart Canada believes that people come first! The vision began with a co-worker (Paddy) of Dave's who had recently immigrated from Ireland and desperately needed a car. With no credit history, the bank would not lend Paddy a penny. Without knowing it, Dave was about to finance his first customer. Together they went to the car dealership, picked out a car that Paddy could afford and Dave financed the loan.

Since our inception 30 years ago, we've been helping to change people's lives. The team at Newstart Canada knows:

  • Bad things can happen to good people
  • Never kick a person when they are down
  • Don't judge people until you have walked in their shoes
  • What goes around comes around


Our goal at Newstart Canada is to help people, who want to be helped.  Bad credit or no credit does not have to be a lifetime sentence.  Newstart Canada wants to be “your stepping stone to better credit” and help you get your credit history back to where it should be.
