What Do Canadians Have in Common with Americans? Debt – Here’s the Solution


Debt Solution winnipeg

DEBT! In May of this year, the United States of America was at risk of defaulting on their debt.  The U.S. debt is over $32 trillion (that’s right trillion with a T). 

President Biden said “it would be catastrophic for the American economy and the American people if we did not pay our bills.” I can’t even imagine the amount of daily interest that would accrue on a debt that large. 

While that debt load is certainly frightening to say the least, Canadians owe over 2.3 trillion dollars in consumer debts including mortgages. So Canadians and Americans both owe trillions  of dollars in debt.  

The U.S. fix was to raise their debt ceiling, meaning that they can borrow more money to pay their debt. Personally I don’t believe getting more debt to pay for existing debt is the right solution but I don’t profess any understanding of national economic policies or macro economics. 

But here’s an area I am intimately familiar with and very knowledgeable about: personal debt. 

Solutions to Personal Debt

I’ve spent my entire professional life understanding and fixing personal debts. Debt can be among the greatest stressors you will ever face. 

When debts get large enough, it can really start to feel like there’s no way out, that the walls are closing in and everything you’ve worked your whole life on may suddenly disappear – debt can be that powerful. After all, when you get deep enough in debt, how can you possibly hope to repay all your creditors barring some miraculous windfall like winning the lottery or being the beneficiary of a long-lost relative’s estate. 

Though it may feel that way, your debt is actually not as insurmountable as you think. It’s actually very, very possible to overcome your debt – easy, even. 

I know that sounds too good to be true, but it’s not – it’s exactly what someone like me (a Licensed Insolvency Trustee) was trained to do: help people get out from under their debt and regain financial freedom. 

How do we do that? 

With a consumer proposal in Winnipeg.
