Wage Garnishment

garnishment is the ability of a creditor to seize a portion of your wages. Generally a creditor requires a court order before they are able to obtain a garnishment. The only exceptions are Canada Revenue Agency, some loans from credit unions, and creditors for whom you have voluntarily agreed to allow them to garnishee your wages.

Most garnishments stop when you file bankruptcy or a consumer proposal.
