Find the best solution for you

The debt industry is complex and designed to work in favour of banks, credit card companies, and creditors. We’re changing that.

At 4 Pillars, we use education and our extensive experience to show you the best path out of debt based on your unique financial situation.



Get a clear view of your best options

We’re not credit counselors or Licensed Insolvency Trustees. We work for you with one single goal; to find the most effective debt solution with the maximum debt reduction to improve your cash flow and rebuild your financial future immediately.

Each situation is different. We could recommend that you consolidate your debt through refinancing. You may decide to file a consumer proposal with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee. There might even be an opportunity for you to deal directly with your creditors to reduce your debt. Either way, 4 Pillars offers guidance, experience, and solutions to solve your debt challenge.

Beating the Debt Game

by Paul Murphy

You’ve seen the headlines. Canadians are greatly overextended in debt, a paycheque away from serious trouble, and further at the mercy of the vast financial system that controls most of our lives.

The stakes are high. The game is rigged. And yet, most Canadians know little about how the debt world really works. Even worse, they don’t know that with a little knowledge any Canadian can make the debt system work for them, instead of against them.

This book is a short guide to tipping the debt scales back in your favour. This book will be your weapon against debt, your financial education that should have been taught in high school, and hopefully a cold dose of common sense to help you avoid falling deeper into those financial traps that attempt to reduce our ability to build long-term wealth and divert our paychecks to the banks, credit cards, and high-interest lenders.

We’re transparent about our fees

Canadians are unaware that credit counseling companies charge a fee. They are funded by creditors to offer their services. Not surprisingly, debtors who use the services of credit counselors often pay back 100% of their debt.

Canadians are also unaware that Licensed Insolvency Trustees are compensated based on the size of the consumer settlement, whereas the bigger the settlement, the more they are paid.

Like any professional service, our fees are clearly outlined at the outset of the process. However, our clients agree that the fees charged are tiny in comparison to the debt reduction gained, and the improvement of their financial situation, improvements resulting from our guidance and expertise.

The creditors don’t fund us. We don’t receive a percentage of what you pay back; therefore, we have absolutely no conflicts of interest. Our allegiance is only to you, the debtor, we are committed to helping.
