We spoke with Becky about our situation and she gave us many great options to explore without being judgmental or making us feel embarrassed or ashamed. This is definitely a good place to start if you need help. Don't be afraid to pick up the phone and give them a call to get back on the right financial track. We no longer have sleepless nights worrying. Thanks Becky for being such a genuine caring person, it’s very rare nowadays.

I had tried another place before coming here and the difference in time and knowledge was like night and day. Cathy was so insightful and didn't rush me out the door, or make me feel like any question I had was dumb. She really helped direct me on the road of debt recovery and I felt empowered leaving her office. Thank you.

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.

I would like to thank the staff at Credit Canada, especially Randolph for his patience, professionalism and for making the experience a lot less intimidating than I thought it would be. I would definitely recommend Credit Canada to anyone who has gotten themselves into an awkward financial situation and needs to know how to deal with it. Look no further.
