Is there a service similar to Lending Club in Canada or is it possible to use Lending Club without having a U.S. bank account?

Edit : If you have an answer that might help with opening a U.S. account and accessing a U.S. peer-to-peer lending website with it, I would consider this also.

Yes and no, P2P Capital Markets is similar concept but is more geared towards business loans.

Community Lend used to offer this service but has stopped.

Thanks for the info. Although it's a bit frustrating to see that there doesn't seem to be any P2P in Canada for people with a smaller amount of money to invest (5~20k) – StevenGilligan Jul 4 '12 at 12:28
@StevenGilligan agreed, but hey there's an idea :). However it might have something to do with the banking laws perhaps. – Kirill Fuchs Jul 4 '12 at 15:40
