– Details on legal service / process in Canada
Legal actions and procedures differ between provinces and territories. Hence we have different guidelines for each.
GDPR can make debt collection challenging as when we request invoices, medical providers may not be able to provide it to us. The other challenge would be on your end. Canada is recognized as a secure country under the GDPR and we can obtain documents as such. However, from time to time, we recognize that a debt collection agency in Europe may not be able to send invoices to us because their capability of sending invoices may not be considered GDPR compliant.
There are many unique requirements to recovering international debts in all countries including Canada debt collection services which differ from the UK and therefore it is very important that cases are handled directly by our expert international debt collection agencies and not from debt collectors UK. This method of international debt collection sets Creditreform aside from the competition who in many cases try and recover debts from a UK debt collector only. Using the local offices and partners enables us to achieve a far greater success rate and our No Win No Fee service together with competitive commission rates against monies recovered only ensures you get the best service.
