Bankruptcy is a legal process for eliminating your debts when they cannot be repaid and involves surrendering any non-exempt assets to the Licensed Insolvency Trustee. It includes a legal declaration of your inability to pay your debts to your creditors, due to insufficient income or assets to meet your debt obligations. You must surrender your assets to the Licensed Insolvency Trustee, unless they meet certain exemptions under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.

Is this option right for me?

Bankruptcy can be seen as the last option when you have no other way to pay off your debts. A consumer proposal should be considered before filing for bankruptcy.

  • Your credit will be negatively affected

  • All your credit cards will be cancelled

  • Assets you own such as car, house and investments may be impacted

  • All collection calls and legal action against you will stop

  • Interest on your debts will stop
