Debt consolidation is a type of loan granted by a financial institution to repay all your creditors. This option does not require you to declare bankruptcy or make a proposal. All your debts are combined into one monthly payment, often payable over a few years. Interest rates on debt consolidations tend to reach 12% (or more) per year and do not affect your credit rating.
If the financial institution refuses to grant you such a loan or if the required monthly payments are too high, a consumer proposal may prove to be a better solution.
Be aware that no institution is required to grant you a consolidation loan. This loan is difficult to obtain as someone in financial difficulty, especially if your credit has already been affected by your debts.
