As a senior who always had gold credit, I hit a low in 2018 due to job loss, and my ex-employer not taking enough tax off. I felt beaten. Thank God for 4 Pillars who in turn referred me to Grant Thornton. I was so embarrassed to have to do this but Kathleen Haase made me feel so much better. Gave me good advice. The hug helped a lot too. Thank you, Kathleen, job well done. I will never forget you

I meet with Kathleen, hoping that she might give me tools and knowledge to stop the pattern that got me in-waters over my head in the first place. She was patient in instructing me and also when I asked her to repeat herself; for I was writing things that she said. When I asked her about books that I can read to keep on helping me, she knew resources right away. My overall impression was great and friendly, really committed to helping me out in this tough time I’m going through.

I love my life now after completing my proposal. I am no longer running from creditors and I have no stress due to a managed financial lifestyle. Kathleen Haase is a wonderful counsellor with an awesome sense of humour combined with a very professional attitude. Linda Gould helped me with my initial consultation. She was reassuring and encouraging despite my situation. I really appreciated how I felt after speaking with her and knowing that there was an answer to my problems despite feeling overwhelmed initially. Without Linda, I don’t know where I would be. Thanks to the whole team.

Two years ago I asked your wonderful caring business for help because of being in debt that my estranged husband left me in because of his gambling addiction and physical, emotional and verbal abuse. Your people treated me with such kindness and respect. I will forever be so thankful. You never will be forgotten.

My first visit I was in tears and Kathleen made me feel so much better. I felt dumb because I got myself into so much trouble and she encouraged me not to be so hard on myself. I am very happy with the outcome of the two sessions we had. She’s awesome. Kathleen is very easy to get along with and she has made me more aware of my financial situation and it has made me better.
I also met with Frieda and she reassured me that it was the right thing to do in my situation. She explained my options to me and did not pressure me to do anything I did not want to do.

Only 7 months ago I was overwhelmed with credit card debt, I was unable to sleep from worry and felt there was no hope. I am so glad I contacted Grant Thornton. With their help, I am now able to sleep again! I filed a consumer proposal and the process was not stressful at all! Grant Thornton was always there and helped me through every stage and explained everything thoroughly. I urge anyone who feels overwhelmed with debt to contact them. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.

I had been struggling for years living paycheque to paycheque. When I lost my job, the future with all my debt looked grim. I met with Rob McLernon and he explained how I could get my life back. I am happy that I made the decision to talk with Grant Thornton.

Prior to going to Grant Thornton, I felt terrible. I was always in my overdraft because I couldn’t make it through the entire month on my pension income. Once I filed I was able to pay my bills, buy groceries and even buy new clothes.
I found everybody at Grant Thornton very helpful. I was expecting a stressful experience, but Susan Methuen made it so I didn’t feel guilty or out of place. There were people available to contact and answer my questions. The counselling sessions with Kathleen Haase were great for showing me how to get myself out of debt and being able to save money. I have told many people to go to Grant Thornton.

I was at the office feeling my senior mother deal with what is most definitely a tough situation. Kara Kolbenson was a joy to work with and was extremely respectful and put my mom at ease. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you.

Coming to terms with my financial situation and actually acting to change it has been, to say the least, a complex and difficult process for me, as it must be for many others. My personal struggles with anxiety have made the journey both longer and personally challenging. I have had the good fortune to have Rob McLernon of Grant Thornton work with me to resolve the first step – entering bankruptcy – on my path toward financial well-being. Rob’s calm, confident, and considerate manner enabled me to take this step, to move forward, and for this, I am sincerely appreciative. Thank you, Rob.
