“The one fundamental revelation, right at the onset of the journey, was that we needed to stop tracking our spending “after the fact” and instead, direct our money to where we wanted it to be spent.   In other words, saving and spending were to become intentional actions instead of reactionary or impulsive…. It is here that I must testify that transformational results have been exponential and thus impossible to record.

What I can say is that after 2-1/2 years of intentional saving and spending, I have come to enjoy the realm of finances.”   –   Jack & Cristina, Ontario

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Canada


Serving the Poor, Saving The Lost
Through the Church, Across the Nation

Christians Against Poverty (CAP), which is helping thousands of people out of personal debt in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, recently launched in Canada. CAP opened their Canadian office in March 2013 in response to numerous Canadian church leaders who have seen the need for debt counselling in their cities. Since launching, we have partnered with over 90 churches to bring our financial education and debt counselling to local communities.

‘Christians Against Poverty does a brilliant job of coming alongside us as a church to help both people in our church and people in our community develop workable budgets and address long accumulated debt. This is a ministry that knows how to help in this most important area. They do so with humility and skill. I recommend them to any church that wants to address some of the real pressures of living in the 21st Century.’
Warwick Cooper, The Peoples Church, Toronto
