Merits of Credit Counselling
Credit Counselling is extremely valuable when compared to the potential cost to society without this service. Over-indebtedness is both an economic and social problem. Excessive debt can cripple a person's potential, destroy family unity and cause severe mental anguish. Economically, the consequences can be detrimental to all those involved including creditors and the community.
Individuals and families in Ontario have the opportunity through Credit Counselling to resolve their debt and money management problems while at the same time reduce their stress dramatically, restore family unity, regain self esteem and establish a sense of well being.
