Activation of a Canadian Tire Credit Card
Canadian Tire Bank (Canadian Tire Financial Services) is the branch of the Canadian Tire retail company that provides financial services. While it originally began as a company offering third-party credit card processing to other retailers, CTFS now offers a wide range of banking services. They’ve been so successful in their venture that Scotiabank purchased a 20% stake in the business in 2014.
Credit cards are among the services offered by Canadian Tire Bank, including MasterCard credit cards that include rewards points. They also offer a Gas Advantage card which rewards users with a lower price on fuel at Canadian Tire Gas Bars.
If you’ve recently acquired a Canadian Tire MasterCard, you’ll need to activate it before using it. We’ve outlined the simple process below:

Tips for New Credit Card Users:
- To decrease the likelihood of identity theft, sign the back of your card before using it.
- Be sure to read your cardholder agreement carefully.
Get the most out of your new card! Familiarize yourself with all of the card’s benefits and use them; sometimes perks like car rental insurance or roadside assistance are buried in the fine print of the cardholder agreement.
