Through the cooperation of various players and creditors, CCS provides professional credit counselling to financially burdened families. We assist people as they plan their budget. Often we facilitate difficult situations by acting as their advocate as our clients settle or repay their debt.
In the community we educate the public in money management and wise consumerism, along with appropriate use and beneficial aspects of credit.
CCS is governed by a Volunteer Board of Directors composed of representatives from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds including family service, employers, business and finance, the labour movement, government, education and the general public. Directors are elected annually.
The agency is currently funded from a variety of sources including the
credit industry, employers and the corporate sector. The agency also
actively fund raises when appropriate, and occasionally benefits from government
