Learn How We HelpGet Started

Here's how it works.


We outline a plan

The goal is to get you out of debt as soon as possible, get you into a payment plan you can easily afford to remove the stress, and protect your assets. After reviewing your current financial situation, we outline a personalized plan to meet the immediate short-term needs of dealing with your debt that fits your long-term financial goals. Our fees cover you right through the program, from solving your current financial challenges to successfully rebuilding your credit and everything in between.


We consolidate your debt

Our role is to represent you, the debtor, and structure a new affordable payment plan to deal with your debt, either through a comprehensive budgeting program or if required through a bankruptcy trustee. The trustee is an officer of the court who acts on behalf of the creditors in a fiduciary capacity. So it's imperative that you obtain your own representation in any major decision. If structured correctly, the proposal will usually repay a portion of what you owe, and its common for our clients to eliminate 80 per cent of their debt. Creditors generally prefer this to you going bankrupt, which usually sees them get nothing.


We help you reestablish your credit rating

Budgeting and credit rebuilding are the cornerstones of any successful plan to deal with debt and once you have the new proposal in place, those will be the next things we tackle with you. We have some of the BEST consultants in the industry to help you understand your credit report and the importance of maintaining a strong credit profile, understand how to effectively manage credit and keep you out of debt for good.


Here is how it all fits together

Imagine a debt-free future.

Debt can be a symptom of any number of problems and life circumstances: a struggling or failed business, reduction in working hours, a drop in sales commission, divorce or separation, injury or illness, or simply previous poor financial decision making and bad advice coming home to roost.

It's important to understand that you are not your debt. Like millions of Canadians, you have a debt issue. But with timely counselling, a solid debt restructuring plan, plus immediate credit rebuilding, you can move on from your debt, wiser, financially solid and fortified against ever going into debt again.
