Check up on your financial health 

Checking up on your progress in managing and paying down debt is an important part of maintaining your overall financial health 

Make a list of your debts to identify the types of debt you have and what you owe

Create a plan to repay your debt to set goals and track your progress

Prioritize debt repayment based on interest rates, balances and other factors

Consider consolidating high-interest debts into one loan with a lower interest rate 

Money worries are the biggest source of stress for Canadians more than work, personal health and relationships 

For optimal health

  • Know the difference between good and bad debt
  • Make a budget to manage your money
  • Avoid debt by saving for your goals
  • Choose financial products and services that are right for you
  • Review your credit report regularly 

In case of a financial emergency

If you’re struggling to make debt payments, contact your financial institution to discuss possible relief options. 

If your debt feels overwhelming, consider consulting a financial advisor or credit counselor.
