BILL OF RIGHTS FOR CANADIANS IN DEBT
Credit Counselling Canada is the leading accrediting body for Canada’s non-profit, certified credit counsellors and a trusted source for consumers seeking help with debt problems.
Why a Bill of Rights for Canadians in Debt?
There is a pressing need to enshrine consumer rights around ethical, unbiased and safe debt counselling. This is especially true, perhaps now more than ever, as Canadians face unprecedented financial challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Credit Counselling Canada and its cross-country member agencies of non-profit credit and financial counsellors are advocating for greater access to and transparency around debt relief options available to consumers.
We have developed a Bill of Rights to help you discern what kind of services you should expect when working with a reputable non-profit credit counselling agency. Use the Bill of Rights as a reference point to ensure you are getting safe, affordable and high quality services.
