Due to Covid-19, I may have to declare bankruptcy in Ontario. Do I need a Trustee Company?

Yes, whether you are an individual or a company, you will need the services of a bankruptcy trustee company.


Because bankruptcy in Ontario is federally regulated which means you’ll require a professional to provide you and/or your business with advice and how to solve your debt issues. Only a licensed insolvency trustee company is able to assist you in filing for bankruptcy.

Covid happened and you’re not alone!

You don’t need to be a psychic to predict that over the next weeks and months, the country will see an increase in personal & small business bankruptcies.

The small business community was hit very hard with thunderous consequences to the owners, their employees, their suppliers and so on. The ramifications are much more significant than what is being measured in terms of unemployment rates right now. This unprecedented event caught most businesses off guard and nothing had quite prepared any business for it.

While small businesses tried hard to resolve the immediate impact with the Government’s relief efforts such a CEWS, CERB and tax deferrals, the length of the shutdown caused permanent damage to some, making recovery an impossible effort. For example, the majority of restaurants still have not reopened and the ones that have are operating with a small outdoor patio.

Many companies accrued debt and rent obligations piled up, without any sources of revenue coming in. The sharp drop in revenues made it impossible for small businesses to keep up with their obligations. Let’s face it, not all small businesses are in a place to have cash reserves, and not all could pivot from “brick and mortar” establishments to online sales that quickly.

Don’t be discouraged by #failure. If you’ve never failed, you’ve never tried. Failure is temporary.

So, some of you may have a very difficult decision to make. You may be an employee who lost their job or the owner who must wind up your operations and just close. Some of you may have to declare bankruptcy. This is where a trustee company can help.
