What Is Debt Consolidation?

Consolidating your debt is the process of combining two or more debts into one. Some people choose a credit card balance transfer, a debt consolidation loan, or a home equity loan, but these often require good credit or high income, and some can actually dig you deeper into a financial hole. One option providing debt relief for Canadians that genuinely works is a Debt Consolidation Program.

What is a Debt Consolidation Program?

A Debt Consolidation Program is an arrangement made between your creditors and a non-profit credit counselling agency. Working with a reputable, non-profit credit counselling agency means a certified Credit Counsellor will negotiate with your creditors on your behalf to drop the interest on your unsecured debts, while also rounding up all your unsecured debt into a single, lower monthly payment. These debt payment programs lead to faster debt relief!

10 Advantages of a Debt Consolidation Program

If you choose a Debt Consolidation Program as part of your debt management plan, it takes care of your unsecured debt. This includes credit card debt, payday loans, unsecured lines of credit, and other unsecured loans. It’s a simple, straightforward solution for debt relief with big benefits, such as:

  • Avoiding insolvency, including bankruptcy or a consumer proposal, which can severely limit your financial future.
  • One lower monthly payment you can afford, and consolidated debt that can typically be paid off within 24 to 48 months. 
  • Stopping or dramatically reducing the interest rate on your unsecured debts, saving you hundreds if not thousands of dollars over time.
  • No more collection calls – you’ll no longer have to fear your phone!
  • Timely, automatic payments to creditors, with full tracking.


  • A certified Credit Counsellor who negotiates with your creditors on your behalf.
  • Simple, monthly fund transfers by telephone banking, debit card, or money order.
  • A set completion date (otherwise known as a light at the end of the debt tunnel!).
  • Free debt management tools and advice.
  • A secured credit card while on the Program, and an unsecured credit card once you've successfully completed the Program*.
*Some conditions may apply based on the status of your debt management program
