Can anyone file personal bankruptcy and how long does the bankruptcy process take?
Anyone with more than $1,000 of unsecured debt (secured car loans and mortgages don’t count) can file personal bankruptcy. While the length of the bankruptcy process varies, a bankruptcy can last as little as 9 months.
Is filing a consumer proposal the same thing as getting a debt consolidation loan?
A consumer proposal is not a loan and is not the same as a consolidation loan. A consumer proposal is a payment plan we help you arrange with your creditors that stops all interest and penalties immediately, allows you to pay less than the full amount owing to each creditor, and sets a fixed monthly payment to help you control your budget and keep your assets. A consolidation loan is a new loan you take out to pay off all your current debts, has a lower interest rate, but you are required to repay the full amount owing plus the revised interest.
Does a Licensed Insolvency Trustee work for my creditors, will they answer my bankruptcy questions honestly?
No, we do not work for your creditors. Trustees are independent of both the creditors and the individual filing for protection. Our job is to answer your questions honestly to help you fully understand how bankruptcy works and prepare you to avoid unexpected surprises.
How much can CRA garnish my pay cheque and what else can they do to me?
CRA can garnish an employee up to 50% of their wages. Sub-contractors and pensioners can lose as much as 100%. CRA can also place a lien on your house and freeze bank account(s) if you ignore them for a long time.
