This really depends on the type of papers you have been served with. The best thing to do is to contact a local trustee right away, schedule an appointment and bring with you these court documents.

It is very likely this is a standard attempt at collection and the filing of a bankruptcy or a consumer proposal will deal with this action, but it is best to confirm it with the trustee.
