Many Canadians do not know of all of the bankruptcy alternatives that are available.

Fortunately, there is a popular alternative to bankruptcy – a consumer proposal.

Filing a consumer proposal is becoming a more popular alternative to bankruptcy each year.

The reason proposals are increasing annually is better consumer education on their options.

If you are considering a proposal or going bankrupt, you are not alone.

Over 100,000 Canadians go insolvent by making a proposal or going bankrupt every year.

Most of these people are honest and responsible citizens who encountered an unexpected situation.

Like a bankruptcy, a proposal is a formal, legal process regulated by the Canadian government.

The Trustee will help you develop a proposal plan, which is an agreement to pay a percentage of what you owe to your creditors.

A proposal could also increase the time you have to pay your debt, or both.

A proposal can last for up to 5 years, and covers debts of up to $250,000 (not including mortgage debt on a principal residence).

Filing a consumer proposal is a popular way of getting out of debt and avoiding bankruptcy.

However, not everyone is a good candidate for a consumer proposal.

Am I a Good Candidate For a Consumer Proposal?

A good candidate for a consumer proposal is a person who has a regular source of income.

Creditors will accept your proposal if you offer more than your creditors would receive in a bankruptcy.

Your Trustee helps make a proposal plan that will be acceptable to your creditors.
