"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."

More Info About the Credit Counselling Society & Our Approach
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. 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.
