"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 been offering non profit consumer credit counselling for well over 20 years. We often end up helping close to 95% of people who get in touch with us without ever having to charge them a penny. People only choose to pay for our help if they decide to go on our Debt Management Program. Lots of people see this program as a form of credit card consolidation because it consolidates each one of someone’s credit card payments into a single monthly payment that you 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, this is just one of a number of ways that we are 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. 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 also the only Canadian organization in our industry to annually open its books to an external auditor.
If you feel you could benefit from one of our highly trained, professional Credit and Debt Counsellors having a look at your financial circumstances and working with you to see what choices you have to get things back on track, give us a call now at 604-527-8999. Our help is free, confidential, and non-judgmental. Truly, the only thing you've got to lose is your debt.
