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.
