5 steps to debt relief in Canada

Facing debt can feel endless if we don’t find ways to manage and curb it in our day-to-day lives. To help lighten your load, we suggest using these five steps in your path to debt reduction in Canada:

Step 1. Create and stick to a budget

Creating and living within a budget is the first step in tackling your debt. Start by understanding your monthly outgoings and spot areas where you can cut back a bit. Try to save at least 10% of your monthly income. This can help you to:

  • Gradually lower your debts
  • Create a funds to offset your debts
  • Develop a safety net for life’s unexpected expenses
  • Form stepping stones towards investing in your future

Step 2. Prioritize the debts with the highest interest rates

When you are juggling various debts with different interest rates, it’s key to strategise which one to tackle head-on first. It’s important you always cover at least the minimum payment on each debt, but any extra money should be directed at the debt with the highest interest rate, as this is the debt that will rise the most over time.

Step 3. Shift your debts from high to low interest rates

One way to speed up debt reduction in Canada is to use a line of credit, which often carries a lower interest rate than other debts. If you have one, consider using it to pay off high-interest credit card debt. Talk to your bank about increasing your credit limit, if necessary, to clear your credit card dues.

 

For property owners, look into refinancing your mortgage or securing a second mortgage to settle higher-interest debts. Essentially, these tactics consolidate your debts under a lower interest rate.

Step 4. Increase your income

If feasible, seek opportunities to boost your monthly income. Even the smallest amount contributed towards your debt can make a big difference. Consider working overtime, or possibly taking a second job, as the added income can ease your debt repayment journey. Alternatively, housing a roommate or tenant could provide supplementary income, accelerating your debt reduction.

Step 5. Set up a personal payment plan

Paying off debt, like achieving any goal, requires a clear plan. Establish specific objectives to minimise your debts. Credit counselling can offer a fresh perspective on your spending and help in realigning your habits with your new financial goals.

 

Create for yourself a payment calendar with due dates and expected payment amounts. You could even consider applying for overdraft protection, alongside automating bill payments through your bank or online platforms so that you don’t miss payments.

Can debt relief help with payday loans?
