Find a non-profit credit counsellor

If you have a lot of debt or if you have trouble paying your bills, you can get help from a non-profit credit counsellor.

They can give you ideas about how to manage your debt. With their help, you can learn how to avoid the same problems in the future. This can help improve your credit record.

For example, they can help you:

  • make a budget
  • understand how you got into debt
  • understand how to get out of debt
  • talk with your creditors to reduce your debt
  • make a debt repayment plan
  • help you repair your credit score

The first appointment to discuss your options is usually free. If you want more help, you have to pay a fee. Non-profit credit counsellors aren’t in business to make a profit from you. If you can’t afford their fee, you can ask for a reduced fee. They may even agree to not charge you any fee at all.
