The OPD Program

What is the Government of Alberta Orderly Payment of Debts program?

The Orderly Payment of Debts (OPD) program is an established debt consolidation repayment program created by the Government. The OPD program provides Albertans with an easy and stress-free way to repay their debts. This program is exclusively offered and managed by Money Mentors in Alberta.

The Difference Between Bankruptcy and OPD

Poor and rich businessmen

If you’re having trouble paying debts and are considering bankruptcy, we can help. Declaring bankruptcy is a legal way to handle your debts, but it is not the best option for everyone. Depending on the situation, bankruptcy can stay on your credit report for 6 to 14 years in Canada, which could affect your ability to get credit later.

 

As a positive alternative to bankruptcy, Alberta residents can use the OPD program. This program combines all unsecured debts into one monthly payment at a GUARANTEED interest rate of 5%.

 

The OPD program was designed with flexibility in mind so it can be tailored to any Albertan’s lifestyle. Clients within the program are able to monitor their progress by logging onto their online profile on MoneyMentors.ca.

  • No start-up fees
  • Guaranteed 5% interest rate
