CALGARY, May 7, 2013 /CNW/ - An Alberta-based not-for-profit credit
counselling agency has taken home the 2013 Consumer Choice Award for
the second year in a row.
Money Mentors, the only not-for-profit credit counseling agency based in
Alberta, received the award in the category of Credit Counselling earlier this year.
"We are so happy to have helped thousands of Albertans become debt-free
and to have these accomplishments recognized by receiving such a
prestigious award," says
Money Mentors' Executive Director Jim Thorne. "But the real credit goes
to our employees - the success of our organization has always been
solely dependent on the excellent service our employees provide to the
many Albertans who call us or walk into any of our six offices
throughout our province."
Money Mentors has offices in Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Red Deer,
Medicine Hat, Calgary and Edmonton. The organization helps families and
individuals recover from financial crisis and move forward through
services such as credit counseling, money coaching, retirement
planning, and community financial literacy.
As the exclusive provider of the Orderly Payment of Debts program, a Government of Alberta program designed to help Albertans lower their
debt, Money Mentors has helped Albertans return more than $125 million
to their creditors since 1997.
The organization was also a founding member and the first accredited
member of Credit Counselling Canada, a 2012 winner of the Consumer
Choice Award for Business Excellence, and a 2008 Alberta Consumer
Champion Award winner.
The Consumer Choice Award (CCA) is a yearly award given to companies who
have gone through a rigorous selection process conducted by a third
party research firm to ensure only the most outstanding service
providers are the winners within their respective industry.
