At our Grant Thornton Limited offices in Thunder Bay, Dryden, and Fort Frances, people from all walks of life, and from all over Northwestern Ontario, come to see us for debt solutions. There is no “typical bankrupt”. There are many reasons why people fall behind in their bills and come to see us to find out how to become debt free. With the cost of living constantly increasing, and wages not always keeping pace, there are many people in the region who are living paycheque to paycheque. As such, it can only take a small piece of bad luck, such as an illness or layoff from work, to cause people to fall behind on their bills. Once this happens, even after you recover from your personal situation, it is difficult to bring yourself current with your bills again. If you’re living paycheque to paycheque, there isn’t going to be much extra money each month to use to make up the payments that you missed. We understand this, and this is why we do not judge anyone who comes to see us.
We haven’t lived your life and haven’t been through your job loss, medical issues, marital problems, or whatever circumstances put you in the position that you are in. Stuff happens, we get that. All you can do it make the best of your own situation, and by coming to this website you are taking a step towards that. Bad circumstances got you into debt, and we can help you get out of the debt. You have options, including consolidation loans, informal settlements, consumer proposals, and bankruptcy. The first step is find out which one is right for you. Contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 310-8888 (toll free) to get started turning your financial situation around.
And for that, we will applaud you, not judge you.
