The following list shows the benefits of using a Licensed Insolvency Trustee, instead of a Credit Counsellor:
|Understand all your options to get out of debt||Insolvency Trustees are required by law to discuss ALL your options for debt relief – not just repayment of your debt.||May be limited to just one approach. May not have the educational or professional background to advise on alternative approaches.|
|Stop creditors from harassing you||A Trustee is able to use the full power of Federal law to protect you. We demand that creditors STOP all collection actions.||A Credit Counsellor does not have the authority to stop legal action.|
|Get full protection from your creditors and the courts||By law, an Insolvency Trustee is the only one who can provide you with full protection from your creditors when you file a Proposal or Bankruptcy.||Credit counsellors are not federally licensed (no government oversight) and do not have legislative power over your creditors.|
|Be protected by a strict code of ethics & a wealth of experience||Trustees are licensed by the government of Canada and must follow a strict code of ethics and undergo many years of training.||Credit counsellors do not have to be licensed and are not independently regulated. Anyone can call themselves a credit counsellor!|
|Pay a fair fee||Trustees are restricted in what they can charge by the Bankruptcy Insolvency Act. No upfront fees and a free consultation are your right!||Many credit counsellors charge large upfront fees, but do not have the power to enforce a settlement on ALL of your creditors. Consequently many of these settlements fail and the debtor ends up filing for protection from the creditors with an Insolvency Trustee anyhow.|
