Credit Counselling Service

Credit counseling is a process or program to help debtors gain financial education, budgeting, and guidance to reduce and eliminate debt.

If you are having trouble paying your debt or have experienced an unexpected financial downshift due to COVID, you may want to talk to a Credit Counselling agency to help you fix things up. There are generally no qualifications to take on a credit counseling service in Canada.

A Credit Counselling agency can help you with 3 major services:

1. Personal Counselling (One-on-one)

2. Seminars on budgeting, how to use a credit card wisely, and more financial educational tips.

3. Debt Relief programs

Finding the Best Credit Counselling Service

Both non-profit organizations and for-profit organizations offer credit counseling services to help Canadians handle or manage their debt wisely.

1. Do Your Research

A reputable organization must have good standing at a provincial or national level, as most associations require members to maintain a specific standard of practice.

To check if there are complaints raised against a certain agency, check the below links:

It is also smart to look into how they are advertising their services. Some of the companies may claim the following:

  1. Can quickly resolve your debt problems and just pay a fraction of it.
  2. Will fix your credit score fast.


2. Know the Service Costs

It’s your obligation to know the service costs of a credit counseling service, know if they offer a free consultation, the types of services they offer, a concrete proposal of how they will go about helping you eliminate debt in a document format, do they provide support to help you manage finances, and are they going to provide a monthly statement of account to prove that the payments are being allocated to your creditors as discussed.

Credit Counselling FAQ

Credit Counselling Service

1. How long does it take to be debt-free when using credit counseling services?

It depends on each individual’s situation. The factors that affect the length or duration of the programs are the amount you owe, the schedule of payments you have agreed with your credit counselor, and the number of interests your creditor is willing to reduce.

2. Does credit counseling affect my credit rating?

Your credit rating has been damaged by missing your debt payments already, and going to a credit counseling company to consult your options won’t affect your credit score. But keep in mind, entering into a debt settlement or debt management might affect your credit in a way.

3. Does Credit Counselling Service help me stop Creditors from chasing me?

A credit counseling agency can work on your behalf. They will be the ones to discuss your debt repayments with your creditors so you can sit back and have peace of mind.

4. How does credit counseling service help me get out of debt?

Credit Counsellors will help you create a personalized debt repayment plan to propose to your creditors. This debt management program will be based on your capacity to sustain long term reasonable payment. Once your program starts, your creditors will stop contacting you, and the interests of your old debts will stop accumulating.


Review Your Options

Everyone’s financial situation is unique. Before jumping into a conclusion and deciding, it is best to talk to different sources to learn how they will help you get out of a sticky situation.

Your decision must be based on the following:

  • How much debt will be repaired or eliminated.
  • What are the types of debt that will be included in a debt relief program.
  • The duration of your debt repayment.
  • How much your monthly amortization will be.
  • The consequences you might face when you fail to pay the monthly agreed amount.
  • Will this stop collection calls.
  • Are your assets safe.
  • What are the service fees and how much will it cost?

Compare your options from each company offering you a debt settlement or debt management program and decide which is the best option that suits your budget.

We at National Debt Relief Services work for you, not for any creditors, therefore you are assured that the debt management program we will be creating is in your favor, and can guarantee efficiency.

I would just like to thank Suma for really making feel comfortable throughout this entire process. Everyone tells you to watch out for gimmicks, quick fixes, and everything else that comes with Debt. Ive had other companies who had made promises and under delivered. However Suma and her team are quick to provide the right answers and guide everyone in a way towards better credit. She has made it seamless with great communication and availability. I have personally referred her to several of my closest friends and i would recommend her to anyone else looking for consolidation.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Debt Consolidation is a negotiated debt settlement offer made between you and your creditors with the help of a Debt Relief Agency in Ontario. Some key benefits of Debt Consolidation are interest-free program, no upfront fee required, combined monthly payment into one affordable amount, no lawsuits, and many more.

Yes, your assets are safe from creditors. A licensed debt relief agency in Ontario will help you come up with an offer to your creditors that will make sure your assets will be out of the paper.

No, in fact, this is one of the great advantages of a Debt Consolidation Program. All wage garnishment will stop from the day you filed the proposal.

The effect on your credit score is not going to be severe. Your credit score will most probably go to R7 Rating and will remain in your credit report for another 3 years after you completed the program. This means that it will not be permanent and you will still be able to rebuild your credit score.


This varies depending on the proposal you will be discussing with the help of a certified debt relief agency. It is also worth noting that debt consolidation cannot exceed more than 5 years.

If a debt is shared, you need to file a joint debt consolidation offer to your creditors. However, in most cases, in which the debts are individually incurred will have no impact on your spouse.

After three missed payments, your debt arrangement with creditors will be broken and you will end up getting chased again for the original debt amount plus interest.

A debt consolidation offer can be paid off earlier if you can. In this way, you receive your “Certificate of Completion” sooner and you can immediately start rebuilding your credit score.

Let’s Just Put It Simple....... Not All Hero's Wear Caps........I spoke with Suma over a fairly lengthy period of time because of my busy schedule and lack of free time on my part, and she was not only extremely patient and understanding, but also beyond helpful And informative. Any question I had and no matter how many times she had to explain it to me she took her time to make sure I completely understood every single step and process before she moved on to the next thing. I have been so stressed out and worked up about my debt and trying to figure out how to fix it all since I know I will not be returning to work at all in the future because of medical issues and being 26 with that realization makes things just that more stressful but Suma made everything so easy and my payments are $100 a month for less then 5 years with no interest or penalties for early pay off. I’m so glad that I didn’t settle with some other place that was asking for $350 + a month for 7-12 years and paying off early would cost you more.
