Visa Student

School is all about preparing you for the real world. Part of that is building a credit history, so when it comes time to buy that mansion or sports car, you’ve shown you can be trusted with money. The Dominion Lending VISA Desjardins Student card helps you establish your credit, and is a great lifeline in case of any emergency expenses. And no, a trip to Cancun is not an emergency expense.
