Solutions for Debt That a Credit Counsellor Can Explain to You

There are several options for credit consolidation in Canada that can be explored with the help of a non-profit credit counselling services. Most of these options are typically not provided by banks, credit unions and other lenders.

Credit Consolidation & Debt Payments Through a Debt Management Program

Not-for-profit credit counselling services in Canada, such as the Credit Counselling Society, have a debt repayment program that is available to consumers. The program makes managing all of your expenses and debts easier because it is based on what you can afford, and all of your unsecured debt payments are consolidated.

Depending on the types of debts you have, how much owe, your assets, and what’s left in your budget each month, the program might be what you need to consolidate your unsecured debt payments. Our Counsellors also know that you still need some money to live and maintain a reasonable lifestyle.

A debt management program arranged by the Credit Counselling Society is supported by your creditors. Your creditors will accept reduced payments and most of them will waive or substantially reduce ongoing interest charges while you make your payments. This saves you thousands of dollars.

If consolidating your payments through a debt management program is an option for you, your Credit Counsellor will explain exactly how it works.

Debt Consolidation Loan

Your Credit Counsellor will outline the pros and cons and can assist you with creating a budget.

Debt consolidation loans mean getting further into debt to try and pay off what you’ve already borrowed on your credit cards and unsecured debts. Depending on your credit score, your lender might be willing to give you a consolidation loan to pay off other debts, but you might need a co-signer.

However, the best way to successfully use a consolidation loan to get rid of debt is to create a budget before you get the loan. This way you’ll know if you can afford the payments, along with the savings you need to set aside to pay for other unexpected expenses with cash instead of credit.

Debt Settlements

When you ask your creditors to accept a lump sum of money, in exchange for fully repaying what you owe, that is called a debt settlement.

Sometimes it makes sense to offer your creditors a reduced, one-time payment to get rid of your debts. But, if you can afford what you owe, your creditors won’t accept your settlement offer.

If a debt settlement is a good option for you, your Debt Counsellor will tell you what you need to know about the process. That way you can consider the implications carefully before you make your decision. Any settlement requires a lump sum of money, so that means that you might have to sell some of your assets, take money out of an investment, or talk to family and friends to see how they can help.

Legal Options in Canada for Dealing with Debt

The Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act may provide the legal debt relief you need, depending on what you owe and to whom, as well as where you live and how many assets you have.

In Canada, we have two main options for resolving debt problems legally. They are a Consumer Proposal and bankruptcy, and both are offered through a licensed trustee.

Before you make an appointment to talk to a trustee, ask your Debt Counsellor for help. Your appointment will be easier if you already know your budget outline, and have a full understanding of your options and situation.

A Consumer Proposal will arrange your repayment for part of what you owe over a 2 – 5 year period. This may be a better option than filing for bankruptcy, which can have severe, long-term consequences.

Find out more about Consumer Proposals by contacting a trustee, or click here.
