In early 2020 Sands & Associates reached a new milestone in their longstanding history as a firm of Licensed Insolvency Trustees dedicated to debt help services in BC – our 30-year anniversary. As we celebrate this important milestone, we would like to thank our dedicated staff whose knowledge, commitment to excellence and compassionate client care are vital to our past accomplishments as well as future successes.

Learn more about who we are, what makes us different from other debt help professionals, and some of our proudest achievements over the past three decades.

Sands & Associates – Founded in 1990

Sands & Associates was founded in BC’s lower mainland by Bankruptcy Trustee Earl Sands in 1990 and later expanded to include six local offices throughout the greater Vancouver area. In the coming years Sands & Associates would grow to an award-winning network of 19 locations across the lower mainland, Vancouver Island and Thompson-Okanagan regions.

Sands & Associates is proud to now serve residents throughout the entire province of BC

By embracing the connection technologies available we can ensure that debt relief services are accessible to everyone, removing in-office service barriers and constraints. We are pleased to be able to help people complete the entire consultation, Consumer Proposal and bankruptcy processes online from the comforts of their own home.

Our perspective on debt management services is based fundamentally on a non-judgmental attitude of kindness, supportive problem solving and empowering our clients to reach their goals.

Our Strength is our People

Our diverse team of Licensed Insolvency Trustees, Insolvency Estate Managers, Qualified Insolvency Counsellors, client support staff and administrative professionals is committed to providing support to our clients throughout their debt-free journey.

Unlike many large national debt relief organizations, we focus solely on debt help services for individuals and small businesses. We are the largest firm in BC to take this specialized approach, offering our services and advice with respect and understanding.  We know that debt-stress can deeply impact people and a debt problem can happen to anyone at any time.

We recognize that relationships with money are deeply personal and it can be difficult to talk about finances and more importantly, money problems. We believe it is vital for consumers to be able to make informed decisions about how best to navigate any financial situation and be aware of their rights and remedies when it comes to debt.

Knowing Is Not Owing

Over the years our debt management professionals have used many platforms to share our expertise about debt and debt solutions with BC consumers. Some notable opportunities for Sands & Associates’ debt experts to encourage financial literacy and provide resources to BC communities have included: regular TV and radio guest appearances, our Dollars & Sense weekly radio show, Sands & Associates’ annual BC Consumer Debt Study, campaigning for consumer protection legislation changes, a nation-wide video contest partnering with Licensed Insolvency Trustees across the country, as well as countless conference and speaking engagements.
