The COVID-19 pandemic has forced people across the country to rely on credit cards to pay for basic essentials — like our food, medication and phone bills.

It’s a recipe for disaster. But there’s a way we could use our credit cards to pay for essentials without getting into bucketloads of debt.

The Bank of Canada slashed lending rates — and it’s cheaper than ever for the banks to lend money to their customers. There’s only one problem: the banks aren’t passing these savings on they’re pocketing the profits instead. [1]

A massive, public petition, seen by all their customers and shareholders, and calling out the banks for profiting during a pandemic could convince them to reduce interest during COVID-19. But people are racking up debt every single day, so we need to act fast. Add your name now.

TD, BMO, Scotiabank, CIBC, RBC, and the National Bank of Canada:

Reduce credit card interest rates for customers during COVID-19.
