One of the main goals of the insolvency law in Canada is to allow an individual or business who is trapped in a cycle of debt, an opportunity to receive a fresh financial start by eliminating the debt they owe, such as credit card debt and personal loan debt. Almost all debt is eligible to be erased when claiming bankruptcy.
This website was written by a professional trustee in bankruptcy with the intention of providing an individual who is thinking about declaring bankruptcy or filing a consumer proposal the information they require to come to a knowledgeable decision on how to become debt free.

If you are struggling with debt you might believe that going bankrupt is your only option, however there are many alternatives to bankruptcy that could be available to you. Based on your personal finances, we can help you tackle your debts, and come up with a debt solution that is better suited to your unique financial challenges. For example, the trustee might help you determine that making a proposal to your creditors is a better way of becoming debt free than going bankrupt.
People might consider a consumer proposal if they have assets that are not protected by the bankruptcy exemptions, and which would therefore be seized in a bankruptcy, or for many other reasons.
Deciding to file a consumer proposal with your creditors means that you will enter into an agreement to pay some, or possibly all, of your unsecured debts through monthly payments over a time period of up to a maximum of 5 years.
When entering into a consumer proposal you can repay a portion of your debts at a substantially reduced, or entirely eliminated, interest rate.
A consumer proposal is appealing for people who have assets they want to protect or who feel that paying off their debts “is the right thing to do” but they need a little bit of protection and assistance from a trustee.
Bankruptcy is a legal process that allows a person with financial problems a fresh start to their finances. You can eliminate your debts and regain your financial health by declaring bankruptcy and speaking with a trustee to learn financial management skills needed to stay out of debt.
Going bankrupt can wipe out your debts in as little as 9 months, giving you a quick fresh start. Anyone struggling with debt can go bankrupt. You can meet with a trustee to discuss your debts in a confidential evaluation meeting to determine if personal bankruptcy is right for you.
Once you claim bankruptcy all collection attempts and legal actions against you, such as wage garnishing, are prevented by the insolvency law; your creditors will not be able to contact you or make any collection attempts at all! The bankruptcy exemptions protect the assets you own from being seized, and allows you a new start to build a fresh financial future while maintaining your pride. In order to qualify for bankruptcy you need to owe $1,000 or more, and you must be unable to pay your debts as required by your financial agreements.
