A Consumer Proposal May Be Your Solution
An alternative to filing bankruptcy, the Consumer Proposal is an interest-free repayment option that protects you against creditors and allows you to keep your assets.
A Consumer Proposal is a debt relief solution that allows you to reduce your debt and repay a portion without interest. It is a formal, legally binding process with an offer to pay back a percentage of what is owed to your creditors, extend the time you have to pay off your debts – or both. It’s a repayment plan where you pay back your creditors, but often at a fraction of what you owe them.
The length and amount of your offer will depend on a combination of affordability and how your offer compares to bankruptcy. A Consumer Proposal is a popular alternative to bankruptcy because it allows you to keep your assets.
Benefits of a Consumer Proposal
- • Allows you to keep your assets
- • Stops collection calls and wage garnishments
- • Freezes interest and penalties on your debts
- • Reduces the amount you pay back on your debts by 70%

Frequently Asked Questions
Consumer Proposal vs. Bankruptcy
A consumer proposal gives you the flexibility to ensure your monthly payments fit into your budget. Unlike in a bankruptcy where payments are determined solely based on income, a proposal fixes your monthly payment. You decide what you can afford that offers a fair return to your creditors – based on your current earnings, not your future ones.

Anyone with enough debt to file bankruptcy may also consider a consumer proposal. The proposal offer must be better than what creditors would get if you were to file a bankruptcy.
