Every day across Canada thousands of interviews are conducted with over-indebted clients seeking a solution to their problems. Many people are able to consolidate their debts through a Debt Management Program. If the client is able to and wishes to, the Agency will act on their behalf to arrange one affordable monthly payment to cover their debts. These arrangements are approved by virtually all credit grantors. Interest charges are usually stopped or greatly reduced which enables the debtor to repay the debts in full over a reasonable period of time, having sufficient income left to cover ongoing living expenses.
You are not alone if you are having debt problems. Insolvency cases in Canada from 1968 to 2004 have increased an average of 9.2% annually. Consumer debt is continually rising.
