Steve Garganis is a renowned financial insider who specializes in Canadian mortgages and debt consolidation. According to Garganis, many Canadians are carrying debt from lines of credit and both personal and professional loans that they don’t need to maintain. In fact, Garganis and his team sat down with one family, and they were able to decrease their monthly payments by $1,954. A lot of this decrease is due to funds such as the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit, or CERB for short.
