Debt in Canada is a growing issue – our nation’s debt load has hit $1.422 trillion, and the household debt-to-income ratio has reached 163.7 per cent! And that’s not slowing consumers down – a recent Equifax study found that non-mortgage debt has increased to $518.3 billion, up from $497.4 billion from 2013.
