What Is a Consumer Proposal in Quebec?
The consumer proposal is a legal agreement made on your behalf through a consumer proposal administrator to your creditors to settle your debts.
You will have a set schedule to pay off your debt, and you will often repay less than you originally owned.
A consumer proposal is a legally binding agreement between you and your creditors.
A consumer proposal helps you clear what you owe and gives you an affordable way to get out of debt.
You will not pay any interest charges on the debt that your creditors have not forgiven.
In order to qualify for a consumer proposal you must:
• Have debts of less than $250,000 ($500,000 for married couples making a joint consumer proposal),
• Be unable to make the payments as they become due on your debts (or you have already stopped making your minimum payments),
• Have insufficient assets to cover your debts if your assets were sold,
• Work with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT), as only a LIT is licensed by the Canadian government to file a consumer proposal on your behalf.
When you meet with a LIT (also known as a consumer proposal administrator), they will help you analyze your financial situation to see if a consumer proposal is a good fit for you.
If you and your Trustee determines a consumer proposal will work for you, your Trustee, acting as your consumer proposal administrator, will help you develop a debt repayment plan to propose to your creditors.
Once your creditors accept your proposal (over 99% of our consumer proposals are accepted), your agreement becomes a legally binding agreement between you and your creditors.
Quebec Consumer Proposal Pros and Cons
• The fees to file a consumer proposal are often more affordable than personal bankruptcy,
• Debt collectors will stop harassing you, since wage garnishments, collection calls and other legal actions will cease once your proposal is agreed upon,
• Your assets will be protected when you file a consumer proposal, including assets that would be lost if you file for bankruptcy,
• A consumer proposal allows you to consolidate your debts into 1 easy to manage monthly payment that you make to your consumer proposal administrator,
• While you can't include your mortgage debt in a consumer proposal, it often becomes more easy to manage your mortgage payments because your other debt payments are reduced,
• Your consumer proposal administrator will handle all communications with your unsecured creditors.
• While it won't impact your credit as much as a bankruptcy, a consumer proposal still has a negative impact on your credit (although debtors making a proposal to get out of debt often already have poor credit),
• You will pay more to your creditors than if you go bankrupt,
• In very rare cases, your creditors can vote to reject your proposal.
