There’s Life Beyond Debt for Everyone

“When debts became a problem, I felt very overwhelmed – like I could not see the end of the tunnel. Picking up the phone felt like lifting a 10 pound rock, but they were very cheerful on the other end of the line. I came in, discussed my situation in privacy, and instantly got relief knowing I was in good hands.”

– Delores

More Information About Us & How We Approach Things

We’ve offererd non profit consumer credit counselling for well over 20 years. 95% of Canadians who get in touch with us are often helped 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 program either eliminates all credit card interest rates or drastically reduces them. Although this is a valuable program that eliminates debt, allows someone to re-establish their credit, 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 firmly believe that the best debt consolidation and debt help is something that allows an individual or couple to accomplish their financial goals in the long-run while getting their finances back on track as fast as possible in the short-term. It’s disappointing that this perspective is at odds with how some commission driven credit consultants, financial counselors, debt advisors, and credit advisors who are out there choose to operate. We feel that when someone is having a hard time financially, it’s important to carefully consider all their options and figure out what’s going to work best for them in the long run. This is one important reason why we pay our staff a salary rather than commission. To hold our organization to the highest standards possible we have joined, been audited by, and are accountable to the National Foundation for Credit Counseling and Credit Counselling Canada. We’re also accountable to the Canada Revenue Agency, a volunteer board of directors and are the only organization in our industry to open up our books to an external auditor every year.

If you’d like one of our professionally trained counsellors to take a look at your situation and help you figure out what all your options are to get back on track, give us a call today at 647-776-0485. All you’ve got to lose is your debt.

The Credit Counselling Society also provides alternatives to filing for bankruptcy in Toronto, Ontario.

Hi had the opportunity to get connected with Kelly Peckitt. I must say, she was highly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and totally understanding. She addressed my questions and guided me so well that I felt so relieved. When I called I had some very important and some silly questions for her, but she did not let me feel at any given point that I was asking her too many questions. I am SO IMPRESSED with her service.Awesomely good job Kelly. Thank you. God Bless.

Professional and helpful. I was so nervous going in but that quickly dissipated once I got to talking to my counselor. I had done a lot of research beforehand so I knew that the Credit Counselling Society was reputable and Not-for-Profit. I had a lot of questions going in and they answered all of them. They even let me read the agreement before it was personalized so that I had an idea of what it covered. I feel so much better now that I am moving towards a more financially sustainable life.

Seriously an amazing resource! Better than anything that have in the United States.

I had a convenient 1 hour telephone conversation with Rhonda where I was given valuable information and alternatives to deal with my situation. Rhonda was very professional and courteous. She listened to my concerns and helped me with a reasonable budget and referred me to a great insolvency trustee who I'm continuing to work with.

The counsellors at Credit Counselling Society have been truly amazing!! However, Mark Christensen has truly helped me to realize my potential to adhere to and successfully complete the program. He has been highly supportive. He has given me great advice and suggestions on customized webinars that will target my weaker areas. The general webinars I took in the beginning are insightful, and I learned that I was far from being alone. With Mark's support, along with all the respectful counsellors and people working to make this less stressful for me, I know, without a doubt, I will become debt free, and I will learn invaluable tools about my own spending and saving habits. This experience, given to me through the Credit Counselling Society, will only help me achieve greater financial control and responsibility for my future!Yeah me!Thanks CCS!!OliveUPDATE!I officially finished my program paying off over $36,000 in debt over 5 years!I now know how to budget better and am going to start with a clean slate and a better crediting rating!THANK YOU again to Mark Christensen for his spectacular support and guidance!Many blessings,Olive

Had a health crisis a few years back that put me in a lot of debt.I found the number of The Credit Counselling Society with the help of my worker at Progress Place..we chose an organization that would provide FREE services. I called The Credit Counselling Society and they immediately set up an appointment with Melanie Luchkow..a credit counsellor. When I spoke to Melanie her calm and reassuring voice immediately put me at ease.She shared with me the information I was seeking in a way in which I could understand and as soon as I hung up the phone..my worries were put at ease and I BECAME DEBT FREE. Thank you Melanie and the Credit Counselling Society..you provide a very valuable service not just in regard to our overall financial health but our physical and emotional well-being too.

I am very happy that I called this place. I was extremely stressed out and Janelle (hope I spelled your name correctly) was amazing. She was very patient with me as I explained my situation and she told me about my various options and what I could do. I even learned something new that I hadn't known before about debt and government assistance.I came away from the call feeling much better, like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I've since followed the advice I was given and it looks like things will get better quickly.Overall a great service with compassionate and knowledgeable staff. Keep up the great work!

The program has helped me immensely by helping my consolidate my debt and negotiating an interest free payment schedule with my creditors. I am now on track to being debt free within 3 years, something I didn't think was going to be possible. My counsellor gave me great advice on ways to save, invest and generally make better decisions with how I use my money. This is an amazing service!

After the first interview, I'm really not that impressed. It still all comes back to the fact that I need to earn more money. Wouldn't that solve everyone's problem? I guess I could say the counsellor was friendly and professional, but there really were no solutions.
