What People Are Saying About Regulating Debt Settlement Companies

Ministry of Consumer Services

"I applaud the Government of Ontario for their efforts to help consumers who use debt settlement services to get their finances in order. Banning high up-front fees, limiting fees and giving consumers clear information upfront is a strong step forward for indebted families in Ontario."
--Laurie Campbell, CEO, Credit Canada Debt Solutions

"The Ontario Government is taking forceful and decisive action to protect Ontarians. These proposed consumer protection measures will ensure that debt settlement companies in Ontario operate with legitimate business practices. Consumers seeking help to better manage their debt loads will know their rights are protected. The Ontario Association of Credit Counselling Services stands in support of this important initiative."
--Henrietta Ross, CEO & Executive Director, Ontario Association of Credit Counselling Services
