A consumer proposal is an offer you make to your creditors to settle your debt for less than the full amount you owe. At Bernier & Associates, our insolvency trustees are trained and licensed to manage this process on your behalf and can help you eliminate your debt.
Contact us today in Ottawa to find out if a consumer proposal is the right debt management solution for you.
A consumer proposal is a procedure under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act by which you make an offer to your creditors to settle your debts. The consumer proposal applies in the following cases:
A consumer proposal allows you to settle your debts without filing for bankruptcy and can help you reduce your debts by up to 70 per cent. Additionally, your proposal payments are interest free, and any legal proceedings or wage garnishment orders are suspended. Your employer cannot terminate your employment. Plus, you get to keep all of your assets including your home, car and registered retirement savings plan (RRSP). The reference to the credit bureau is deleted 3 years after the proposal has been fully implemented.
