The interest alone was burying me and I couldn't seem to make any progress paying it off. Someone in my family suggested I contact the Credit Counselling Society to see if they could help. I met with a very nice man who was able to show me how to do a proper budget and he contacted all the creditors for me and got my interest dropped so I only had to pay off what I had actually spent. He got me on a payment plan that took into consideration my income and other living expenses & bills. It was a little over $200 a month and I had paid it all off in a little over 2 years. 10 years later, I have rebuilt my credit score to an excellent 750 and I have used the budgeting skills taught to me by my credit counsellor to use my credit cards wisely and live within my financial means. I would highly reccomend this company to anyone who wants to get out of debt and start building their credit again.read less

“Life just happened. My debt got to the point where I started to feel like I was drowning. I didn’t feel like I could fix it on my own, and I wanted to start living my life as an adult without debt. I decided to reach out for help. Feeling relieved, I knew that everything was going to be okay – a lot of work – but okay. I had a plan to pay back my debt and continue doing the things I love to do like yoga and travelling.”
More About the Credit Counselling Society & Our Standards
We’ve offered non profit consumer credit counselling for well over 25 years. 95% of Canadians who get in touch with us are helped through our non-profit service without being charged a cent. People only choose to pay for our help if they decide to go on our Debt Management Program. This consolidates each one of someone’s credit card and other unsecured debt payments into a single monthly payment that they can afford. The debt management program either eliminates all credit card interest rates or drastically reduces them.
Although this is a valuable program – it’s really a simple debt repayment plan – that helps people become debt free, allows someone to re-establish their credit, manage money more effectively, protects their privacy, and gets their finances back in order as fast as possible, it’s just one of a number of ways that we’re able to help people. We believe that the best debt consolidation in Nanaimo or debt help is an option that allows someone to get back on track as quickly as possible while helping them achieve their long-term financial goals and learn to use their credit wisely.
Unfortunately, our approach is at odds with the way some commission driven financial counselors, debt advisors, credit consultants, and credit advisors out there operate, but we believe that when someone is struggling with financial problems, you need to look at all their options and focus on what’s going to help them the most in the long run. For this reason we don’t pay our staff commission – only a salary. 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 the only Canadian organization in our industry to annually open its books to an external auditor. To benefit from one of our highly trained credit and debt counsellors having a look at your financial situation and working with you to see your choices for getting things back on track, give us a call now at 250-741-8558 for a free consultation. Our help is free, confidential, and non-judgmental. The only thing you’ve got to lose is your debt. The Credit Counselling Society also provides alternatives to bankruptcy in Nanaimo, BC.
