Maple Leaf Debt Helpers Relaunches To Help Canadians Get Debt Relief

September 27, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Maple Leaf Debt Helpers is proud to announce the launch of a new and improved web portal aimed at connecting consumers across Canada with high-quality debt relief services. The new site features a wealth of information about managing debt as well as the debt settlement process and its alternatives.

In recent years, many Canadian consumers have become over-leveraged. The average Canadian currently has a debt-to-income ratio of over 150 percent and spends hundreds of dollars per year on interest payments alone. Since 2000, the growth rate of Canadian household debt has outpaced that of household income by a factor of three.

While much of this debt takes the form of secured obligations like mortgages, auto loans and home equity lines, a growing proportion of it is comprised of high-interest unsecured credit vehicles like credit cards and personal loans. The persistently poor economy has forced millions of Canadians to use these less-than-desirable forms of credit to pay for necessities like electricity, water service and groceries.

Most financial experts recommend against using credit cards or personal lines of credit to cover daily expenses. If they're not carefully monitored, unsecured debts can quickly spiral out of control and saddle consumers with stubborn balances worth thousands of dollars. Many Canadians who have dealt with serious debt problems in the past report feeling blindsided by their situation.

Over the years, thousands of debt-ridden consumers have turned to Maple Leaf Debt Helpers in their time of need. Unlike debt consolidation loan providers ( and credit counselors, which merely reduce their customers' interest rates by a few percentage points, Maple Leaf Debt Helpers negotiates directly with its clients' creditors to cut the principal balances on their outstanding debts.

While the particulars of each case may vary, Maple Leaf Debt Helpers is consistently able to reduce its clients' total debt loads by 40 to 60 percent. What's more, the firm has a proven track record of shepherding its charges through the debt settlement process in as little as 12 months.

Maple Leaf Debt Helpers offers more than just fast, flexible debt settlement. Its new website is a veritable treasure trove of educational articles that cover a range of topics. (

In the spirit of fairness, many of these write-ups explore other debt relief options as well as budgeting and credit-management techniques. Maple Leaf Debt Helpers expects its website to become a go-to resource for debt-plagued Canadians looking for answers to their problems.
