Overcoming Financial Challenges with Debt Consolidation

Blog-Date-1Feb 07, 2022

For many Canadians, the past two years have brought significant financial challenges as job losses and health issues have taken their toll. There’s no silver bullet that will solve everyone’s problems overnight. For some, however, debt consolidation can be an effective strategy for easing the financial strain they are under.

In this article, we discuss how Pillar works with Ontario’s mortgage broker community to help borrowers overcome financial challenges with debt consolidation.

Supporting struggling borrowers

Financial hardship can impact anyone. And as we’ve seen during the pandemic, it can hit hard and without warning due to health issues, job losses, or countless other challenges.

While government support programs like CERB have helped to dull the blow recently, they are currently being wound down at a time when high inflation and economic constraints continue to cause financial pain.

At Pillar, we have a simple message for borrowers facing financial difficulties: we want to help.

How Pillar can help

As a transitional lender, our focus is on working with brokers like you to provide mortgage financing that helps borrowers end up in a better position.

This means that a Pillar mortgage can serve as a steppingstone for borrowers on their journey from financial distress to financial wellbeing.

Working closely with you, we can help your clients work through challenging financial situations such as:

  • Discharged bankruptcies
  • Paying out taxes owing
  • Paying out consumer proposals
  • Irregular cash-flow situations

We look beyond a borrower’s beacon score to gain a complete picture of their situation. Our flexible approach means we can then structure a mortgage that aligns with the borrower’s cash flow and affordability.
