Wondering How a Debt Consolidation Program Works?

Unlike debt consolidation loans, you’re not borrowing more money. Instead, a debt consolidation program is an arrangement between you, your creditors, and Credit Canada that provides debt relief. Here’s what the program can do for you.

  • Wrap up all your unsecured debts into one lower monthly payment (including credit card debt, payday loans, unsecured lines of credit, outstanding bills, etc., as these debts don’t have collateral attached to them, like a home or car)
  • Reduce or stop the monthly interest on your debt
  • Negotiate a lower monthly payment that you can afford
  • Set a completion date, so you can see the light at the end of the tunnel (sometimes in as little as two years)
  • Stop annoying collection calls

Sandy is absolutely incredible. I had the pleasure of working on a Debt Management Program with her 2.5 years ago. She taught me financial skills, budgeting, learning to work with my money, and motivated me to reach my goal. I paid off $10,000 in debt in 9 months. Today, after my 2-year mark, she wrapped up my account and helped me with credit building options for the future. So relieved, grateful and happy I had the opportunity to work with Sandy and Credit Canada.

Working With a Reputable Credit Counselling Agency in Barrie

We know when it comes to choosing a Canada debt solutions company, you have many options. However, it’s important that you don’t pick the first company you come to (or that comes to you) out of desperation. There are many crooked companies out there willing to take advantage of your situation, making your financial situation even worse. 

Working with Credit Canada, you can be confident that you’re in good hands knowing we will offer you the best debt consolidation solutions in Barrie. What makes us different?

Our Fees are Reasonable

For-profit credit counselling agencies charge just for a counselling session, and then charge high monthly fees when you enter a program. Not at Credit Canada. Our debt counselling is free, and if you sign up for a Debt Consolidation Program you’ll pay just a small set-up fee of $50 and a minimal management fee of 10% that’s included in your monthly payment.

We are an Accredited Organization

Credit Canada has accreditation from both Credit Counselling Canada (CCC) and the Association for Financial Counselling & Planning Education (AFCPE).

We are a Non-Profit Organization

As a non-profit organization, Credit Canada will never take advantage of you. In fact, we are constantly lobbying against scams and companies making unrealistic promises. As stated on the Government of Canada’s website, a non-profit “is a club, society, or association that's organized and operated solely for social welfare, civic improvement, pleasure or recreation, or any other purpose except profit.”

Some shady companies have been known to change their names frequently so people aren’t able to find dirt on them online or through reviews. Credit Canada has been around for over 50 years, and you’re also welcome to check out our Google Reviews, where we’re proud to say we’ve received an impressive 5 out of 5, with 36 reviews about our Barrie credit counselling. In addition, we’re often a featured expert in the press, such as the Financial Post, The Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star, and more.

Make the Call That Could Change Your Life!

Today, more than half of all Canadians say they’re concerned about their debt, and nearly 50% don’t believe they’ll be able to cover their expenses over the next few months without increasing their debt. If this sounds like you, let’s talk. We’ve been in the business of helping Canadians for over 50 years, and our certified Credit Counsellors have years of experience. Our Barrie Credit Counsellors will never judge your situation, and never pressure you to enter a program you’re not interested in. Of course, you don’t have to just take our word for it. Our clients have plenty of great things to say, too!

If you want debt relief without declaring bankruptcy in Barrie, give us a call at 705.252.2327 or fill out the form on this page. Our experienced credit counsellors offer consumer debt counselling with a free debt assessment and confidential, non-judgmental money management advice with no obligation.
