Legally speaking an employer is not legally allowed to sever employment directly due to the filing of a consumer proposal.

In terms of you salary and whether or not it is at risk prior to the filing of the proposal, it is at risk. The bank, in the absence of a proposal, always has the right of set-off, meaning they can seize money directly from your account to off-set amounts you owe the bank. This can be done at any time and without asking for permission. The key is this is only allowed within the same institution, in order for creditors to access money held by another institution they then need court permission.
