How to Manage and Overcome Major Debt Problems in Canada

Debt problems can creep into anyone’s life in Canada, and the one thing they often seem to have in common is the massive anxiety, stress, and worry that they tend to cause. If you’re ready to deal with your problem with debt, we can help you find the right solution for your situation so that you can sleep again and not have to agonize about your bills and financial issues anymore.

How to Overcome Your Debt Problems

When you’re considering how to overcome serious debt problems in Canada, the best way is to tackle them sooner than later. Waiting and hoping that things will get better means that you will probably end up with less options available to you in the future.

If you’re not sure what to do or where to start and you’d like some guidance or information, feel free to call us or anonymously chat with us online. We’re happy to answer your questions or help you make an appointment to speak with one of our accredited Counsellors confidentially. There is never any charge for our appointments, and we don’t obligate you anything.

Our helpful, professional Credit & Debt Counsellors will guide you on the path to getting your finances back on track with a practical plan that is broken down into realistic steps. Here is what they will likely help you with:

 

  • Creating a budget to manage all of your debts and household bills
  • Showing you steps that you take right away to start dealing with your debts
  • Discussing options that will help you pay off your debts or find alternatives to bankruptcy if you can’t afford to pay back all of what you owe

Warning Signs for Serious Debt Problems that Require Attention

Sometimes your situation will improve and you’ll be able to get back on track without anyone else’s help. But if you’ve been struggling for over a year with your debt issues, look out for these warning signs that you might have a more serious debt problem.

To figure out if you need some assistance to get your debts back on track, ask yourself:

  • Is debt stress making it more difficult to deal with everyday life?
  • Do you notice that you are no longer getting ahead simply making minimum payments?
  • Have you been declined for a debt consolidation loan?
  • Do you depend on your credit cards, line of credit, or overdraft to make ends meet each month?
  • Are you on the receiving end of collection calls or letters?
  • Are you embarrassed by your financial situation?
  • Are you having trouble sleeping because of money worries?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions about the signs of debt problems, then you most likely need help to eliminate your debts and get your finances back on track. Speak with one of our Credit & Debt Counselors today.
