"I had just come to the point where I had given up hope – that there’s no way I could ever repay my debt. A friend of mine suggested I reach out, and I thought I’d get some condescending person on the phone lecture me about money, but my counsellor was the most compassionate, caring person who became sort of my own personal cheerleader."
- Charis, Actual Client
More Info About the Credit Counselling Society & Our Approach
We have provided non-profit credit counselling for over 20 years. We usually end up helping close to 95% of people who reach out to us entirely for free. Someone will only end up paying something for our help if they make the decision to sign up for our Debt Management Program. Many people see this program as a type of credit card consolidation since it happens to consolidate every one of someone’s credit card payments into just one monthly payment that fits their budget. With this program, interest is either stopped or substantially reduced. Even though this is a great program that protects peoples’ privacy, eliminates their debt, allows them to repair their credit, and puts their finances back on the right track as soon as possible, this is simply one of a variety of ways in which we assist 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 647-776-0485. We’re here to help you.
