MANITOBA CONSUMERS' BUREAU ISSUES ALERT



The Manitoba Consumers’ Bureau today issued a notice of cancellation of the collection agency licence of Canada Debt Assistance Inc.
 
If the notice of cancellation is not appealed within 14 days, or if the appeal is not successful, Canada Debt Assistance Inc. cannot act as a collection agent in Manitoba from that point forward.
 
All collection agencies in Manitoba must be licensed by the Consumers’ Bureau. If consumers have encountered problems in their dealings with a collection agency, or if they have questions or concerns, they should contact Manitoba’s Consumers’ Bureau at 945-3800 or 1‑800‑782‑0067 (toll‑free).
