Canada Bankruptcy - Possible Solutions

  • Talk to your creditors and explain your difficulties; consider returning goods; try to negotiate smaller payments over a longer period of time.

  • Talk to your bankers. Try to arrange a consolidation loan; the bank may charge a lower interest rate than credit cards or other financers and might accept lower periodic payments.

  • Attend seminars on managing your finances presented by Credit Counselling Services of Alberta Ltd. (CCSA)

  • Check with your employer to see if there is an employee assistance plan available to provide counselling for financial management.

  • Obtain credit counselling services from your local family or community association.

  • Apply to CCSA for a Consolidation Order (Orderly Payment of Debts) allowing you to pay 100% of your debts over an extended period.

  • Contact a bankruptcy trustee to discuss whether you may be able to:

    1. make an informal arrangement or settlement with your creditors, or

    2. make a proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.

    These options are NOT bankruptcy.
    There is no charge for a consultation with most bankruptcy trustees listed on this web site.
