About Coast Capital Digital Lending

Coast Capital Digital Lending is Coast Capital’s online platform that allows applicants to apply for a loan or line of credit online, without ever having to step in to a branch.
To use Coast Capital Digital Lending, at this time you must be a resident of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba or Ontario and be the age of majority in your province.

You can use Coast Capital Digital Lending to apply for unsecured personal loans as well as unsecured personal lines of credit starting at $5,000. We offer terms of 12 to 60 months for personal loans. Lines of credit have no defined paymnet term, meaning you don't have to pay it back in full by a certain date (aside from any monthly interest payments). 

Looking for something under $5,000 or borrowing for a business? Email us and a Coast Capital team member will get back to you through your preferred contact method.

A line of credit is similar to a credit card limit, but instead of a separate account and card, it’s attached to a chequing account. You access the funds when you need it, and pay interest only on what you use. Any amount you repay is accessible to you again without having to reapply.

A personal loan is a specific amount borrowed with a defined repayment term. Loans have scheduled repayment dates and amounts that can be monthly, biweekly or weekly. The balance of the loan decreases with each payment.
