22 firms "make the list" as The Largest Collection Agencies Operating in Canada

If you have not made a payment to one of your creditors in the last two to six months then there is a good chance you have been receiving collection notices and collection calls from the in-house collection department at your creditor.


if you have not, however, made a payment to your creditor in more than six months then you are probably receiving collection calls from a collection agency that is attempting to collect your account on a commission basis.  This means that the collection agency calling you does not receive a single penny unless you make one or more payments on your outstanding account.



Arbitrary decision to restrict our list to collection agencies with fifty or more collectors


We have compiled a list of the largest collection agencies operating in Canada.  We have made the arbitrary decision to only include  those collection agencies collecting monies from Canadian residents employing more than fifty collectors.  Our list of the Largest Collection Agencies Operating in Canada, found below, appears in alphabetical order--and not the largest collection agency first, followed by the second largest collection agency, and then the third largest collection agency in descending order.  In fact, you would have to go to the bottom of our list to find the largest collection operating today in Canada--Total Credit Recovery Ltd. 



Total Credit Recovery Ltd. is the largest third party collection agency operating in Canada


According to our sources, Toronto-based Total Credit Recovery Ltd. is the largest third party  collection agency collecting monies from Canadians.  This agency, employs the largest number of third party collectors in Canada--by a significant margin.  Since many collection agencies are privately owned and operated no information is available to the public that would shed light on their size.   While using the number of collectors employed by a collection agency as a barometer of its size--is not a precise measurement--as a practical matter, it might be the only practical tool for measuring the relative sizes of collection agencies.


Under Quebe law, any and all collection calls from collection agencies to Quebec residents must originate from a location within Quebec.  This means that the following 22 collection agencies, virtually all of whom operate across Canada, will have a Quebec office location where collection calls are made to Quebec residents.

Honourable mention for the four largest non-profit credit counselling agencies in Canada


Most people would not think of a credit counselling agency as a collection agency.  However, some senior executives at Canada's largest creditors refer to Canada's three or four largest non-profit credit counselling agencies as the best collection agencies in the country.  Furthermore, in some provinces credit counselling agencies are required to possess a collection agency license.  Our list of the  Largest Collection Agencies in Canada gives an honourable mention to the four largest non-profit credit counselling agencies operating in Canada today:
