Overwhelming debt is unfortunately a fact of life with over 125,000 Canadians filing for bankruptcy or opting for consumer proposal in 2016.
What is Consumer Proposal?
Consumer proposal is a legal agreement created by a bankruptcy trustee with creditors to consolidate debt. This alternative to bankruptcy restructures debt, so it’s more manageable to pay down, which usually leads to completely eliminating it within five years.
Choosing consumer proposal can be a great alternative for individuals with a non-ideal financial situation. Recently, there’s been an increase in Canadians who have chosen this approach to consolidating their debt and working to rebuild their credit. However, it’s advised to thoroughly assess your options before you decide whether consumer proposal is the best option for you.
It’s important to note that opting for consumer proposal may be the right choice if you have a significant income or assets, yet still struggle with a heavy debt load. This isn’t the best case or only scenario. A steady job with a stable income is essential for making monthly instalments and covering the associated fees of your payment plan that’s been developed by your bankruptcy trustee. And in order for many people to continue working, reliable transportation is critical.
