At Comprehensive Debt Solutions Inc. we are creative in terms of how we obtain information which is not available to the public.

A collection agency is a firm that collects monies owing to others.  The primary business of collection agencies is collecting unpaid accounts owing to other firms on a commission basis.  Some, but not all, collection agencies, also will purchase portfolios of unpaid accounts.  The accounts are referred to as purchased debt.

Your original creditor is the firm that provided you with goods, services, or credit.  Today it is becoming more common for original  creditors--especially creditors other than chartered banks--to sell their unpaid accounts. 

Each province and territory in Canada not only licenses collection agencies but also regulates their conduct.  If you live in British Columbia, Alberta, or Ontario then you are entitled to the same protections with respect to the activities of debt buyers as you are from collection agencies.

If you are a former or current employee of a creditor, collection agency, collection law firm, or a debt buyer you are invited to share your observations with Mark Silverthorn by contacting him at (519) 987-3270 or
