When you file a joint consumer proposal both parties are responsible to see that the payments are made. If one person passes away then the other person will be required to continue to make the proposal payments if they want the proposal to continue.

In regards to your scond question, proposals may be paid out at any time – if you inherited money (or won the lottery) you could choose to pay the balance on the proposal, or you could simply continue to make your monthly payments. You could also choose to pay off the debts in full and apply to the Court to have the proposal annulled (canceled).
