Credit Counselling

You can expect to be treated with respect as you confidentially discuss your financial situation with a certified credit counsellor.

What Is Credit Counselling? What Should I Expect?

It’s a Confidential Financial Review

You can expect to meet with an experienced, professionally certified credit counsellor in person or by telephone who will treat you with respect and dignity while they review your financial situation. They will ask you questions about your income, your spending, any money that you owe and about your future goals.

You can rest assured that:

 

  • We respect your privacy and will keep the information you exchange with your counsellor private and confidential.
  • Your counsellor will provide you with helpful and objective information and advice on developing a budget, using credit wisely, and debt repayment options.
  • Your counsellor will help you explore all of your realistic options. These options can include debt consolidation, drastic interest relief through a debt management program, a consumer proposal or referral to a professional service or reputable bankruptcy trustee if bankruptcy is clearly your best option.

Our Credit Counsellors Want to Help You

We want to share our knowledge and expertise with you, and are happy to answer your questions.

Most of our credit counsellors joined our organization with many years of experience in the credit and financial services industry. Each one has a wealth of knowledge and insight about credit, debt consolidation options, debt relief options, personal budgeting, using credit wisely, and money management.

Clients Refer Others to Credit Counselling for Help or Advice About Their Debts

Helping people isn’t just a job for our counsellors – it’s something they deeply care about, and that shows. We ask everyone who meets with one of our counsellors to complete a survey about the service they received. One of the questions we ask is whether or not you would refer our service to others.

On average, 98% of our clients respond that they would refer someone to us – and they do. Our largest source of referrals is from people we have previously helped.
