Forecast for the industry in 2014

“We feel that the requirement for good credit will become a necessity by most merchants dealing in loans, financing, leasing and credit granting to name a few. This trend which we have already experienced by the tightening of the mortgage loan requirement with the B20 rules (and more to come) will cause Canadians to seek out trusted, proven and easy to use credit assistance, credit management and credit education. We forecast that this requirement for good credit will be adopted and become the standard around the world thereby making the need for a credit management and credit education system a must.”
