Credit Counselling & Bankruptcy Support

If credit is your main issue, a financial planner may not be the resource you need.

For issues regarding debt management as well as bankruptcy, we recommend speaking to a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT).

Formerly known as Bankruptcy Trustees, LITs are licensed by the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy (OSB) to administer proposals and bankruptcies in Canada. 

There is no cost to speak to a Licensed Insolvency Trustee.

Here are a few companies & resources to help start your search for support from an LIT.
