Frequently Asked Questions.

What's the difference between a consumer proposal and a bankruptcy?

Both options protect you from legal actions by creditors.

A consumer proposal is a formal agreement between you and your unsecured creditors, where you negotiate through a Licensed Insolvency Trustee to repay a portion of your debt based on your income, assets, and overall debt load. It offers a manageable way to reduce your debt burden while providing protection from creditor actions.

Bankruptcy is a legal process that eliminates most of your debts and puts an end to legal proceedings initiated by creditors. Certain assets may need to be settled with the  Licensed Insolvency Trustee. You can achieve debt relief while maintaining ownership of your assets once they are settled with the Trustee.
