Why so many people in Ontario need credit card debt relief
Accumulating credit card debt is easy – but getting out of it is a different story altogether. Your balance owed starts off small but, over time, begins growing at an alarming rate. And suddenly, you find yourself struggling to keep up with your monthly payments. If only it were as easy to eliminate credit card debt as it is to hit your credit limit! All hope is not lost there are several credit card debt relief option in Ontario available to you. We can help you find the right solution.
Why is it so easy to get overwhelmed by credit card debt? There are several reasons:
- Mindless spending. Since you’re not using your own money when charging purchases to a credit card, you’re more likely to overspend.
- Generous credit limits. Credit card providers offer credit limits that encourage you to spend beyond your means.
- Minimum payments. To keep your card in good standing, you only need to pay a minimum amount each month, which allows interest to pile up quickly.
- High-interest rates. The average credit card interest rate is 20%. As a result, your balance can balloon to a massive size in a short period. And should you make late payments consistently, your card issuer can increase that rate to 30% or more!

We sincerely understand many people never meant for their credit card spending to spiral out of control.

It bailed you out when you were low on cash – but now it’s causing you financial hardship.

Here are some credit card debt relief options to explore:
Consolidate and reduce your credit card debt with a Consumer Proposal
A consumer proposal is the superior version of a debt consolidation loan. With the help of a Licensed Insolvency Trustee, we will combine all your credit card debts and negotiate new reduced payment terms with your creditors. You’ll have the opportunity to slash your outstanding balance by up to 80%, leaving you with a much smaller amount to repay.
Unlike debt consolidation loans, a consumer proposal safeguards your assets from repossession. And it stops any future interest charges and penalties, too. Another significant advantage of a consumer proposal is when the consumer proposal process begins, creditors are legally required to stop calling you and will not be able to garnish your wages. These benefits make a consumer proposal a far more cost-effective and less distressing form of credit card debt settlement.
A Consumer Proposal is legally binding settlement with your creditors
We can wholeheartedly recommend a consumer proposal to solve your credit card debt woes. A consumer proposal is a federally regulated debt relief program designed for individuals looking to get their debt while avoiding bankruptcy. It’s the safest, cheapest, and most effective way to achieve credit card debt relief.
Our team of Licensed Insolvency Trustees can negotiate a legally binding settlement with your creditors. Your existing credit card debt will merge into a single payment plan free of interest and penalties. Once your creditors agree to the proposal, they must adhere to its terms from that point forward

Consolidate and reduce your credit card debt with a Debt consolidation loan
A debt consolidation loan allows you to merge your existing credit card balances into a single loan. Typically, you consolidate credit card debt using a personal loan. However, you can also apply for a balance transfer credit card or home equity loan.
The benefit is that you’ll be responsible for making only one monthly payment at a lower interest rate than the one your credit card issuer charges.
However, it’s crucial to remember that you’re still obligated to repay 100% of your debt consolidation loan balance. If you fail to do so, you risk losing any assets you’ve pledged as collateral, such as the cash in your savings account or your home.
Consolidate and reduce your credit card debt with a Debt management plan
With a debt management plan, you combine your existing credit card balances and repay your debt monthly through a single payment. A non-profit credit counsellor arranges a debt management plan on your behalf. Usually, they can secure a lower interest rate for you, reducing your overall debt burden and enabling you to pay off your balance faster.
However, much like a debt consolidation loan, no portion of your credit card debt is debt is reduced. You’re responsible for paying the balance in full, typically over three to five years.
In addition, your credit counsellor holds no legal authority over your creditors; the repayment plan isn’t legally binding. As a result, your creditors can still pursue you for payment and send your account to a collection agency.
Eliminate your credit card debt through bankruptcy - but only as a last resort
The most extreme method for eliminating credit card debt is filing for bankruptcy. It’s the option of last resort, where negotiating a repayment plan with your creditors is impossible.
Unlike a consumer proposal, bankruptcy will completely wipe out your credit card debt and any other unsecured debt you wish to include. Once you’re discharged from bankruptcy (which can occur in less than a year), you’ll have the freedom to start fresh and rebuild your credit.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to surrender your assets (with some exceptions) during bankruptcy proceedings. And bankruptcy remains on your credit report for six to seven years.
As with a consumer proposal, a Licensed Insolvency Trustee is the only professional in Canada who can administer bankruptcy on your behalf.
