Understand Your Debt Options and Choose the Solution that Fits
Many Canadians are amazed to learn about all the debt resolution options available to them. A Consumer Proposal, for example, can provide a debt reduction of up to 80% or more, an immediate interest freeze, and manageable monthly payments, all while being protected from the stress of creditor calls and actions.
During your free confidential debt consultation with Sands & Associates, we will discuss all debt management options available to you, including debt consolidation, filing a Consumer Proposal, considering Personal Bankruptcy, or simply give you sound advice on debt strategies you can undertake without a formal debt restructuring process.
Our goal is to help you become debt-free and equip you with the information and tools you need to achieve a financial fresh start with confidence.

- Debt stress is real stress
No one is immune to stress and its negative effects. Most people in debt feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope. For some, the stress can become so great that it damages their personal relationships, causes emotional distress, and causes or exacerbates physical ailments. Anxiety, depression, feelings of hopelessness about the future, stomach ulcers, and trouble sleeping are a few of the common ways debt stress can manifest. Taking steps to improve your financial situation can have a dramatic impact on your health, well-being and outlook. Many of our clients have told us that they lead happier and healthier lives since managing their debts, and wish they had met with us sooner.
- The decision to take charge of your debts puts you back in the driver’s seat
Debts are often caused by outside events such as divorce, health problems, unexpected events or loss of income. While those issues can be solved, the debts they create can become a long-term problem. Deciding on a path that will eliminate your debt not only helps you regain control of your situation, it also marks the beginning of your financial fresh start. During your debt consultation, a qualified professional will inform you of your rights and options for debt resolution. The knowledge and guidance you receive will allow you to make the best possible decision for your situation, so you can move forward positively and confidently.
- Knowing is not owing
There are many misconceptions about debt solutions that can stop people from taking action. Many people believe that bankruptcy is a highly public process and that their employers will be notified if they file. This is false. Another common myth is that it is impossible to get credit after filing a Consumer Proposal or Personal Bankruptcy. This is also untrue. Re-establishing credit two to three years after bankruptcy is often achievable to be considered for mortgages and car loans. Don’t let misinformation stop your progress. We provide clear explanations and practical insight so you can better understand your debt relief options. We are here to answer your questions and help you overcome your situation.
- A debt-free future is waiting
Imagine how different your life would be without the burden of debt. While it may feel hopeless right now, it is important to know that there is a solution for you. It is possible to achieve a financial fresh start. We understand that taking the first step toward debt resolution can feel daunting.
Our team of Licensed Insolvency Trustees is committed to creating an environment where you can feel comfortable discussing your finances. Empathy and empowerment of each individual are fundamental to our approach. We are here to restore your faith in your financial future and arm you with the insight you need to make an informed decision to move forward and become debt free.
