Debt consolidation

Debt consolidation loans

If you qualify for a debt consolidation loan, your financial institution will pay your creditors. In exchange, the financial institution will offer you a single monthly payment at a potentially lower interest rate. Your eligibility depends on your overall credit rating, the total amount of your debt, your income and in some cases the security you can offer.

A good debt consolidation plan can help you:

  • explore all of your debt consolidation options to deal with your debt and regain financial stability

  • streamline your debt into one affordable monthly payment

  • more effectively manage your budget

  • save hundreds or event thousands of dollars in interest

  • repay your debt more quickly

While we cannot provide you with a debt consolidation loan, our Edmonton professionals at Grant Thornton Limited can help you find out if this is an appropriate option for you.

A debt consolidation loan gathers your debt into a single amount so that you can repay multiple creditors through one monthly payment. The interest rate is often lower than what your existing creditors offer. If your bank turns you down for a debt consolidation loan in Edmonton, we can help you with other options to get out of debt.

Orderly Payment of Debts (OPD)

An Orderly Payment of Debt program eliminates your debt using a court ordered consolidation that will have you make one monthly payment that is within your budget. It is a way of consolidating your unsecured debts without borrowing more money. If OPD is a good option for you, our Edmonton Trustees will explain how it will consolidate your debts into one credit payment, how the interest rate is lowered and how you will successfully get out of debt.

Debt consolidation with a consumer proposal in Edmonton

If you do not think you will be able to qualify for a debt consolidation loan or OPD, you may want to consider a Consumer Proposal. A consumer proposal is a legal process which enables you to consolidate your debt and make an offer to your creditors to modify your payments or to repay only a percentage of what you owe. A proposal allows you a fresh start without going bankrupt.

We'll review all your options for debt consolidation and getting out of debt

Our debt help professionals can lay out all your options for you and help you find the right solution. Your plan will be customized to meet your personal, long-term financial goals.

We can also address other problems that may have prevented you from getting a debt consolidation loan. Our advice is based on your unique financial situation and finding out which debt solution works best for you.
