Debt Consolidation options in Ontario.

There are two types of debt consolidation in Ontario: high-interest debt consolidation loans and interest-free consumer proposals.

Many people we meet know about debt consolidation loans but have never heard about an interest-free form of debt consolidation, called a Consumer Proposal, a better way to consolidate your debt.

Have you applied for a debt consolidation loan and been denied?

We do not provide loans. If you’re looking for a loan, we suggest you speak to your bank first to see if you qualify for one. For many Canadians, debt consolidation loans can lead to even more financial stress. High-interest loans and hidden fees could lead to payments that exceed the original debt.

A Consumer Proposal is a federally regulated program designed to help Canadians reduce and eliminate debt without loans and rebuild their financial security.

While the concept of getting a high-interest consolidation loan to pay off debt quickly may seem like a good idea, it’s a short-term band-aid solution with long-term adverse effects.
There is a lot that lenders won’t tell you.

David explains how you can consolidate your debts without a loan, Interest-free.

Consolidating debt with a loan is an option for individuals that can qualify for a low-interest loan, from a creditable financial institution.  However, for those unable to qualify for a low-interest loan, consolidating your debt with a consumer proposal may be a better option.

Debt Consolidation Loan in Ontario vs. Consumer Proposal

Unlike debt consolidation loans, a consumer proposal combines all of your unsecured debts into one low monthly payment and completely eliminates the high-interest payments you are currently making. 

A debt consolidation loan does not eliminate interest, stop collection calls, wage garnishment, or offer the legal protection a consumer proposal can.

Avoid high-interest lenders

If you find yourself in a difficult financial situation and you have poor credit, finding a low-interest loan may be difficult. For many of our customers, turning to a subprime or high-interest lender is the only way they can
access the funds they need. The Canadian Government has laws in place that prohibit lenders from charging interest rates that exceed 60%.
*However Payday loans are exempt from the 60% interest rate limitation, the annual interest rate on a Payday loan is close to 400% or higher if you miss payments.

Examples of non-bank loans, with high-interest rates:

Debt Consolidation in Ontario FAQ's

Debt consolidation loans are an attractive solution to people in debt because it’s a quick fix to end collection calls, eliminates the need to pay multiple creditors every month, and some lenders do not usually require credit checks, like a bank would. These may seem like benefits in the short-term but there can be long-term implications.

Third-party lenders often market high-interest debt consolidation loans as easy money. However, what they don’t tell you is that this “easy money” is hard to pay back and can result in a debt spiral that is even harder to get out of.

Some interest rates on these consolidation loans can reach almost 60%—the maximum amount of interest a lender is allowed to charge in Canada, without being considered criminal! If the combined interest rate on your loan is higher than what you are currently paying to your individual creditors, then you might find yourself in more debt than you started with. In many cases people find they have actually increased their payments not decreased them by choosing to take on a consolidation loan.

Debt consolidation is the bundling of all your debts (credit cards and loans) so you have one monthly payment.

Interest rates on some consolidation loans can reach almost 60%—the maximum amount of interest a lender is allowed to charge in Canada, without being considered criminal! If the interest rate on your loan is higher than what you are currently paying to your individual creditors, then you might find yourself with more debt than you started with. In many cases, people find they have actually increased their payments not decreased them by choosing to take on a consolidation loan. We believe that providing high-interest loans to people already struggling with debt is like strapping a weight onto a person who’s already drowning.

Debt consolidation loans appear to be an attractive solution when you’re drowning in debt, because they promise a quick fix that ends collection calls, eliminates the need to pay multiple creditors every month, and some lenders provide these loans without a credit check. While these may seem like benefits in the short term, there can be long-term implications. We see many debt consolidation loans included in consumer proposals.

The truth about high interest Loans

If you choose to take on a debt consolidation loan with an unaffordable interest rate,  you may find yourself unable to make the monthly payments which will negatively impact your credit rating. If you already have a poor credit history the only debt consolidation loans you may qualify for will have an extremely high rate of interest.

Getting into debt is easy. Getting out is a different story.

But it's still possible!

Did you know there is a Canadian debt relief program federally regulated by the Canadian Government, designed to help citizens avoid claiming bankruptcy? This amazing program can only be administered by a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT).

If you’re struggling to make your payments every month and creditors won’t stop calling, we can help.

The company as a whole is fantastic. If you’re not ready or serious they won’t harass you with cold calls but when you are ready they will help you with a realistic plan. Everyone I’ve worked with is efficient and knows what they’re doing. Just like everyone in the comments I have to praise Cori who I would describe to people like the auntie who knows best lol thank you for everything.

David Sklar & Associates… they work for you. They do everything they can to help you get out of debt. They lower your debt, then help you rebuild your credit. They care about helping Canadians get out of debt.I’m in a fair amount of debt, and they almost cut my debt in half for me, and in just five years, I will be debt-free, because of them. I’ve been sick because of the amount of debt looming over my head. After my first meeting with Grace, I feel so much better. Grace set up a Consumer Proposal to help me get out of my debt, and I can see an end to my debt. My mental health has gotten so much better since that first meeting, and I owe it all to Grace, and everyone at David Sklar & Associates. Thank you, all!
