Albertans Serving Albertans
Our Mission Statement
To educate Albertans in personal money management and the wise use of credit, and to provide alternatives for families and individuals facing financial crisis.
A Rewarding Story
Money Mentors is the only Alberta-based, not-for-profit credit counselling agency. Through a number of services, we help families and individuals recover from financial crisis and move forward. From credit counselling and money coaching to retirement planning and community financial literacy, we’re creating a healthier financial future for the entire province.
Since our beginnings as Credit Counselling Services of Alberta, we’ve helped thousands of Albertans discover financial solutions, become debt free and ultimately live happier lives.
Opening our doors in 1997 to help Albertans regain control of unmanageable debts, we became the exclusive provider of the Orderly Payment of Debts program – managing the program on behalf of the Government of Alberta. Within five short years, Money Mentors was completely self-sufficient – with most of our funding coming from agreements set up with creditors seeking payment from clients.
Our services, along with the Orderly Payment of Debts program, have been very successful – with our clients returning more that $125 million to their creditors in our first 15 years. While we’re thrilled with our success, we know there are many more Albertans who need help managing their everyday finances. That need inspired us to develop our Personal Money Coaching, which offers unbiased financial advice without any sales pitch.
As a founding member and the first accredited member of Credit Counselling Canada, Money Mentors has successfully been granted the Consumers Choice Award for Business Excellence in 2012 through 2015. In 2008, we were named the Alberta Consumer Champion Award winners, giving us a credible and solid reputation.
We have a friendly, qualified and experienced team of personal and family financial experts including Accredited Financial Counsellors, Professional Home Economists, and Certified Financial Planners who can help you get the most out of your money.
