Sands & Associates Vice-President and licensed trustee Blair Mantin recently spoke with Debt Free in 30 host Doug Hoyes about American-based debt settlement companies, and their impact on Canadians.
While debt settlement companies have received media attention and the implementation of legislation changes restricting their practices in other provinces, British Columbia has yet to follow suit. Blair discusses the possible ramifications of unlicensed debt settlement, and alternative solutions for Canadians.
