The Credit Counselling

One in six people are estimated to have serious financial difficulties which causes worry and stress in their lives. Many people inadvertently find themselves in crippling need of debt help in Ontario due to a disability, illness, job loss, business failure or divorce.

How Credit Counselling Helps You

Many people believe that when their debt gets out of control, they need to file for bankruptcy but this is simply not true. As a licensed insolvency trustee we are able to provide you with debt help in Ontario and the best solutions for your debt problems, like debt consolidation or credit counselling.

Debt Consolidation

A debt consolidation loan combines all of your outstanding debts into one single payment. This payment will satisfy multiple creditors and can be obtained from a financial institution. Debt consolidation loans are given based on numerous factors like income, job stability, debt level and credit rating.

Contact our office for more detailed information about this process and your situation.

Consumer Proposal

Consumer proposals often will lower the amount of debt you need to pay back to your creditors by offering a lower repayment amount and prevent further interest from accumulating. This option for debt help in Ontario can help you avoid filing for bankruptcy by working with your specific situation and finances.

Orderly Payment of Debt (OPD)

This is also referred to as a Consolidation Order and is an order from the court. This means that the court will consolidate your loans so that you can pay an administrator who pays your unsecured creditors on your behalf at an interest rate of 5% per annum within four years. This four year term can be extended but can actually damage your credit rating more than filing for bankruptcy. An OPD is often preferable because it protects you from garnishments and lets you keep certain assets like your home or car. This option is only offered by government-approved institutions and isn’t available in every province. Ontario is one of the provinces where this option is not available.


If there are no other solutions and you can’t pay your creditors back, filing for bankruptcy will give you immediate protection from your creditors. You will have a fresh start once you’re discharged from bankruptcy.

Filing for bankruptcy isn’t a decision to be taken lightly, so please consult with a licensed insolvency trustee to learn more about the process and how you can manage your debt.
