Statistics on insolvency in Canada
Getting into financial difficulty is no fun. Most people who are deeply in debt feel shame and guilt for their money problems because they affect their whole family. A stack of unpaid bills and repeated calls from collection agencies can give people the impression that they are alone in the world and helpless.
But in fact, as shown by recent statistics from the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada, you are not alone in experiencing money problems.
