This article explores the real-life story of Mike and Susan, who leveraged a consumer proposal to regain financial control.

Understanding Consumer Proposals

A consumer proposal is a legally binding agreement negotiated with your creditors through a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT). This agreement includes a plan to pay back a portion of your unsecured debts over a specific period, significantly reducing the overall debt burden.

The Story of Mike and Susan

Mike and Susan, like many others, were living the dream of homeownership. However, health issues forced one of them to stop working, pushing them into a financial crisis.

Their Journey Towards a Consumer Proposal

With mounting bills and a reduced income, Mike and Susan turned to a Bankruptcy Canada Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT) for help. The trustee was able to renegotiate their debt, reducing it from $115,000 to $41,000—a reduction of 64%.
