Differences Between Consumer Proposal and Bankruptcy in Ottawa

There are two legally binding debt relief plans in Ontario that will allow you and your family the ability to gain a new financial start. They’re known as Personal Bankruptcy and Consumer Proposal. With each of these solutions, you’re provided immediate protection from your creditors, meaning they can’t sue you or contact you. In a consumer proposal, you usually repay only a third of what you owe and you get to keep all of your assets, including tax refunds, investments, and home equity. The greatest benefit to the consumer proposal is that you can avoid bankruptcy, while achieving freedom from your debts.

When you file a personal bankruptcy, your payments vary based on your income and you may have to surrender some assets. A benefit to filing bankruptcy, especially if it’s your first one, is that it can be completed in as little as 9 months. In a consumer proposal, your repayment period can last up to 5 years.

At Hoyes Michalos, we don’t provide a one-size-fits-all solution to your money problems. We take our time and give every one of our clients a tailored plan to pay off their debts and have financial peace of mind.
