Assuming that you are the debtor and your employer is in another country; your creditor will first have to obtain a judgement before they can take judicial recourse to recover the debt. Depending upon which country the employer is located the creditor may or may not be able to continue the collection of the judgement in a foreign jurisdiction. Nevertheless your employer may simply choose to pay the garnishment order and avoid the complications of ignoring a Canadian Court Order. If you filed an Assignment in bankruptcy or a consumer proposal, the automatic Stay of Proceedings, set out in the statue would protect you from this collection practice.
