Bankruptcy is a legal process under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act ("the "BIA") that is intended to provide financial assistance in the form of relief for individuals, corporations, partnerships, and some types of trusts with overwhelming debt loads, by way of a stay of proceedings which halts creditors’ legal actions. This stay of proceedings prevents any unfair advantages of one creditor over another.
Bankruptcy can be used to seek relief from all or part of a debt. Bankruptcy is usually imposed by a court order. This is often initiated by the debtor.
The bankruptcy process starts with the filing of a petition by the debtor (which is the most common), or on behalf of creditors (which is less common). The debtor's assets are assessed and measured. Some assets can be used to repay some of their outstanding debt.
