“My child support was suddenly cut off and my income cut in half.” Linda Ross
It got to the point where Linda couldn’t keep up with her debt payments. It was getting harder to keep up the illusion that everything was under control. With the help of Credit Counselling Society , she now feels like she has got a grip on things.
“Suddenly the anxiety and weight on my shoulders went away.” Angela MacKinnon-Daoust
Debt was crushing Angela, physically and emotionally. Angela was a single homeowner trying to make ends meet when things started to go wrong. She turned to Credit Counselling Services of Atlantic Canada for help. Suddenly the anxiety and weight on her shoulders went away. She had someone there to hold her hand and help her get through it to the finish line. Now the only debt she has is her mortgage!
If I hadn’t gone on the Debt Management Program (DMP) I would have continued to use my credit cards and my life would have been a disaster. I feel like I have control now.
Overall, my experience with the DMP was excellent. There were frustrating moments but my counsellor was patient and helped me do what I needed to do. Thank You. I was very happy to successfully complete the program. I could not have done it without my counsellor.
You have helped me stay on track and reduce my stress! Thanks again! I had a recent phone meeting with [my counsellor]; he was absolutely wonderful, no judgement, answered all of my questions, and made sure I fully understood everything. Great experience. I am so grateful for all the sound advise.
Our couple’s counsellor recommended Thunder Bay Counselling Centre, to my husband and myself in May of 2020. We were going through a separation and working on restoring our marriage. We needed to talk openly about our finances in a neutral space.

I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for the agency and Financial Counselling. This program has helped me beyond my finances and I appreciate everything they have done and continue to do. I would be in a very bad spot if it wasn’t for them. I look forward to my future now in being able to own my own home and start a life over.
Since completing the program with your agency I have carried on with the skills I built with everyone’s assistance. I have a credit rating once again, 2 credit cards which I keep paid off at all times, two small savings accounts and all bills paid on time. I manage part time with my current employer. On top of it all I seem to be doing even better during this crisis.
