Managing debt and making decisions about your path forward can be stressful and downright confusing. We’re in the process of putting together an educational campaign to help consumers understand their rights in BC when it comes to debt and borrowing. We’ll provide lots of tools and resources to help you make informed debt choices.

So, why are you here?

We’re running ads – possibly like the one you may have just seen that brought you here – to test and find out the best way to get the word out about our educational resources. We want to get everything just right before the educational campaign starts in February 2024!
