"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."

More About the Credit Counselling Society & Our Standards
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 is 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 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 also ensure our organization operates at the highest ethical standards and follows best practices, we have chosen to join, submit ourselves to audits by, and are accountable to Credit Counselling Canada and the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. We are also accountable to a volunteer board of directors, the Canada Revenue Agency, and are the only agency in our industry to open its books up to an external auditor annually. When it comes to earning and keeping your trust, we believe that maintaining the highest standards of transparency and accountability are paramount.
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 403-263-9905. We’re here to help you.
