Do You Have to Pay Old Debts? | DFI30 | Ep. 385. If you ignore an old debt, will it just go away? What if it’s been removed from your credit report already?

On today’s podcast, Doug Hoyes and Ted Michalos discuss how the Statute of Limitations works in Ontario, updates to the law, and which debts it does and doesn’t apply to. They also review 3 scenarios to help you understand what may or may not happen when it comes to owing old debts. Tune in for lots of practical advice!
