If you are in need of debt relief, help with your debts, or solutions to debt problems, you are not alone. Many people face financial challenges at some point in their lives. If you are struggling to pay your credit card debts or any other debts, it is very important that you do something about your situation as soon as possible. Fortunately, in Canada there are many non-profit organizations that specialize in helping consumers who are experiencing debt problems.
Non Profit Credit & Debt Counselling - Confidential Financial Review and Debt Relief Plan
Non-profit credit counselling organizations help thousands of Canadians each month with their debt and credit issues. You can speak with a Credit Counsellor in person or over the phone, usually for free or else at a very low cost. A Credit Counsellor will help you by reviewing your situation. They help you explore different options and then help you work towards a solution. All information you share with a Credit Counsellor is kept completely confidential.
Create a Personal Budget to Pay Off Debts - Professional Budgeting Help
A critical step in helping you get out of debt is to create a personal budget that allows you to meet all of your obligations. A trained Counsellor will help you develop a realistic budget. Through a non-judgmental assessment of your situation, your Credit Counsellor will also offer you guidance and identify additional debt solutions to help you resolve your situation.
Creditor Approval of Debt Management Programs
Get help from a Non Profit Credit Counselling Organization
Your creditors want to see you deal with your situation. With a proper plan in place, they are more likely to be receptive to giving you time to repay your debts. One of the main benefits of working with an accredited, non-profit credit counselling organization is that creditors recognize their structured debt management programs as successful alternatives to bankruptcy. If you require additional services that a Credit Counsellor is unable to provide, they will refer you to a qualified professional in your area.
