It’s Official! At Comprehensive Debt Solutions, we are naming Total Credit Recovery Ltd. the largest collection agency operating in Canada. This announcement is based upon the fact that our sources indicate that the Toronto-based Total Credit Recovery Ltd. employs more collectors making collection calls to Canadians, excluding purchased debt, than any other collection agency–by a signficant margin.
Comparative sizes of collection agencies based upon number of collectors
In our view, the only practical yardstick for measuring the comparative size of collection agencies in Canada is the number of collectors they employ making third party collection calls to Canadian residents. Since many of the largest collection agencies operating in Canada are privately-owned there is no financial information available to shed light on the collection agency’s size. While the number of collectors that a collection agency employs is not a precise yardstick for measuring the comparative size of collection agencies, it is the best method for measuring the size of collection agencies.
23 collection agencies in Canada employ more than 50 collectors
Our research indicates that 23 collection agencies in Canada employ more than 50 collectors making third party collection calls to Canadian residents. Comprehensive Debt Solutions has a webpage titled “Largest Collection Agencies Operating in Canada” dedicated to these 23 collection agencies and lists the addresses for each of the company’s locations, as well as their telephone and fax numbers and website addresses.
