There’s a way out of debt with help

I had just come to the point where I had given up hope, that there’s no way I could ever repay my debt. A friend of mine suggested I reach out, and I thought I’d get some condescending person on the phone lecture me about money, but my counsellor was the most compassionate caring person who became sort of my own personal cheerleader.

More Info About the Credit Counselling Society & Our Approach

We’ve been providing non-profit consumer credit counselling since 1996. We typically end up helping around 95% of people who contact us completely free of charge. The only time someone pays for our services is if they decide to go onto our Debt Management Program. A lot of people view this program as a credit card consolidation since it consolidates all of someone’s credit card payments into one affordable monthly payment with either no interest or an interest rate that’s significantly reduced. While this is a tremendous program that protects peoples’ privacy, allows them to restore their credit, eliminates their debt, and gets their finances back on track as quickly as possible, this is only one of many ways that we help people.

We truly believe that the best debt consolidation or debt help is a solution that enables someone to get back on the right track as soon as possible while at the same time helping them accomplish their long term financial plans. Regrettably, the way we approach this is very different from the way some commission focused debt advisors, credit consultants, financial counselors, and credit advisors out there do things, but we firmly believe that when someone is having a difficult time financially, you need to carefully look into all options available to them and concentrate on what’s going to do the most to help them in the long-term. This is why we don’t pay any of our staff commission – only straight salaries. In addition to this, to ensure our organization meets the highest national and international standards, we decided to join, open ourselves to audits by, and become accountable to the most respected organizations in our industry in Canada and North America, Credit Counselling Canada and the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. We also report to a volunteer board of directors and to the Canada Revenue Agency. We’re also the only Canadian organization in our industry to annually open its books to an external auditor.

If you’d like to speak with one of our professionally trained Credit and Debt Counsellors, take a look at your financial situation, and see what options you have to get back on track, call us today at 1-888-527-8999. We’re here to help you.

The Credit Counselling Society also provides alternatives to bankruptcy in Canada.
