It is my understanding that a Division 1 proposal is not a bankruptcy. Does a Division 1 proposal have an R7 rating the same as a Consumer Proposal is given?

Yes, it does – so does a credit counseling plan too.
I should warn you that what the credit reporting agencies say and what they do are often dramatically different.
Proposals are supposed to result in a rating of R7, but the reporting agency will actually report whatever their members tell them to. If a company has already report you as an R9 (say they wrote the account off or sent it to collections) and you file a proposal they may not request the change to an R7.
This is a major flaw in the credit reporting system and until/unless people make some noise about it, it isn’t likely to change.
Sorry – this is a personal pet peeve with me and since I have this soapbox available, I tend to use it.
