Debt consolidation, Consumer Proposals and bankruptcy services can seem complicated – but they don’t have to be. Debt relief solutions like a Consumer Proposal can write-off up to 80% or more of your consolidated debt without interest, penalties or fees. There is only one professional that the government endorses to provide debt solutions to British Columbians, Licensed Insolvency Trustees (formerly called Bankruptcy Trustees).
When you need non-judgmental, compassionate debt advice Sands & Associates is here to help you assess your situation and work through it – together.
Book your free consultation today to get advice from our caring, non-judgmental debt professionals in Maple Ridge. In less than an hour we can work with you to find a debt solution that meets all of your needs – your financial fresh start awaits!

Blair Mantin specializes in consumer insolvency and strategies for debt resolution. With 13 years of experience, Blair helps individuals and organizations facing challenging financial situations navigate the often overwhelming, and sometimes confusing, world of insolvency. While each person’s situation is unique, his approach remains the same: “Let’s take the shame and despair away from being in debt – it’s a problem like any other, and it has a solution that works just about every time.”
As Sands & Associates Senior Vice President, Blair says the most important aspect of his job is empowering clients with information about their options to become debt free. “My job is to ‘level the playing field’ from a knowledge perspective – by providing individuals with the insights they really need to resolve their situation, they are able to move forward from a position of strength,” he says.
Blair’s number one piece of advice for people seeking help with their debts:
“Never, never pay for debt advice, and be careful about who you take advice from. Only a Licensed Insolvency Trustee will give you the straight goods at absolutely no cost to you.”
