“Will my creditors stop harassing me?” This is one of the main triggers that drive debtors to seek bankruptcy protection.
Yes, they will! As soon as a bankruptcy or a consumer proposal is filed a Stay of Proceedings goes into effect.
The Stay of Proceedings stops collection actions and contact actions against a bankrupt. Interest stops accruing and wage garnishee orders, whether in place or contemplated are stopped.
This does not apply to secured creditors such as banks holding, for example, a lien on a car.
