Pretty much all Albertans have some debt. But when some debt becomes too much debt, it can be difficult to imagine how you will pay it all off. Money Mentors offers a unique debt consolidation repayment plan called the Orderly Payment of Debts (OPD) program. If you qualify for the OPD program you benefit from a fixed interest rate and can rest easy knowing that you will pay off all your debt within 5 years.

 

What is the Orderly Payment of Debts (OPD) program?

The established Orderly Payment of Debts (OPD) program is a debt consolidation program legislated under the federal Bankruptcy & Insolvency Act (BIA) and monitored by the Province of Alberta. Designed to be flexible, it can be tailored to any Albertan’s busy lifestyle and life circumstances. It is the stress-free way to consolidate all your debts into one easy payment plan, making life more manageable. Based in Alberta, Money Mentors is a non-profit organization and the exclusive provider of the OPD program.

What is the difference between the OPD program and bankruptcy?

If you’re having trouble paying your debts and are considering an insolvency program like bankruptcy, we can help. As a positive alternative to bankruptcy or a Consumer Proposal, Alberta residents are eligible for the Orderly Payment of Debts (OPD) program through Money Mentors to pay back your creditors fully. This program combines your unsecured debts into just one monthly payment, at a fixed 5% interest rate. Even better, you get to keep your assets, and it only stays on your credit report for two years after program completion.
