U.S. credit history will not transfer to Canada

Dear Experian,

I am a citizen of both the U.S. and Canada. I currently reside in the U.S., but I plan to move with my family back to Canada. Will my United States credit history transfer to Canada? Are there credit card companies that offer accounts that will transfer from the U.S. to Canada?


Reestablishing credit after moving from Canada

Dear Experian,

I recently moved here from British Columbia, Canada, and when I apply for a credit card here you deny it because you say my credit information is not available. How may I make my Canadian credit record available to you so I may start a credit history here with an American credit card?
