If I declare bankruptcy and 5 months later one of my parents dies and I am the beneficiary, what happens to that money?

You will lose it – it becomes an asset of your bankruptcy for the benefit of your creditors. If after your debts have been paid in full there is money left over, that will be returned to you.
You should contact your trustee to discuss your options – it may be a consumer proposal makes sense. Offer your creditors 90% of the inheritance allowing you to keep a piece and cancelling your bankruptcy. We’ve done this quite a few times for people…
