A couple of quick things you need to answer:

1) did you list you US debts on your proposal documents when you filed with your Administrator?

2) did your Administrator send them the required notices and information?

From a legal standpoint, you are protected from repayment in Canada, but your debts still exist in the U.S. If you have assets or income in the U.S. in the future your U.S. creditors may pursue them.

Call your Administrator and they will help you sort this out.
