I ordered the report online from www.equifax.ca, it cost around $20, so you need a credit card to order it, the information was very detailed, it gave me my credit score as well. In that version (with the credit score) they give you a lot of detailed tips to help make your credit better, very helpful if your planning on making a large purchase on credit, like a home, in the next year or 2. It was nice to be able to see what the credit companies see.
I have found the Equifax report useful, in particular for telling me that both MBNA and Citibank both won't close your credit card account unless you repeatedly beg them. They like to keep the account open "for your convenience", which lowers your credit rating.
