Financial Distress & Debt

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. Many Canadians carry a certain amount of debt as part of their overall financial picture. However, at times, those debts can begin to feel overwhelming. Whether your financial situation is personal, or business-related, financial distress can be difficult to manage on your own. Bankruptcy offers some relief if you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to repay your debts. Or, a consumer proposal can help. Through a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT), you can put together a proposal document that offers to pay back creditors in a certain way, under certain terms. Experiencing financial distress can lead to further feelings of anxiety and depression. It can be a cause of disagreement in marriages and relationships. Admitting you are in financial distress can be confusing, difficult, and embarrassing. Are you unsure of your current financial situation and debt-load? Do you have questions or concerns about what you owe, and what resources are available to help alleviate some of your debt? Could you use the guidance of a financial adviser, or do you need legal help in regards to your finances? We have the resources within your community that you need. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
