About Us

You have come to the right place!

Community Counselling and Resource Centre (CCRC) is a not-for-profit agency with roots that go back to 1956. The Credit Counselling program here at the CCRC has been an integral part of this agency for the past 40 years. As a not-for-profit agency, our concern is for you only. Our highly trained and dedicated staff has been practicing credit counselling for a combined total of 62 years. The Credit Counselling program takes great satisfaction in assisting our clients in their transition to effective financial management. We strive to have our clients leave our office with reduced anxiety and a feeling of financial control.
For over 40 years, our trained and dedicated staff have assisted clients in solving their personal financial management and debt issues. We serve over 4000 clients annually, all of whom have a wide range of circumstances.
Are you currently in a financial situation? With our combined 62 years of credit counselling experience, our counsellors provide clients with the information, tools, and skills they need to regain control of their finances and turn things around. All of our services are private and confidential, and are provided at free or minimal costs.
We are an agency member of the United Way, a member of Credit Counselling Canada, and a founding member of the Credit Canada Network of Not for Profit Credit Counselling Services. Our service has been awarded Accreditation from both the CCC and previously the OACCS, and our counsellors are fully certified through the AFCPE.  We have excellent relationships with banks and creditors, who are often willing to cooperate with us as we work with you. Our services are private, confidential, and come at little to no cost.

We offer telephone advice, as well as face-to-face money management and debt counselling for clients in the Peterborough, Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes, and Northumberland counties.
