OUR
REACH

Credit Counselling Canada member agencies have been helping Canadians for decades. We may not be huge in number, but we are passionate and dedicated.

Through collaboration and partnership our members create innovative programs to best meet the needs of people in their communities. Last year, together we reached 117,014 individuals through community educational events.

Furthermore, our executive leadership team engages in continuous lobbying on consumer legislation and regulation. Whether it be payday loan regulations, consumer financial literacy, or collection practices we strive to be the voice of the +38,000 consumers counselled by our members last year.
