In a consumer proposal the trustee’s fees are set by the legislation. So it is likely that this initial payment is simply a deposit and is not entirely reflective of what the fees will be.

In terms of whether a deposit of this size is normal, that really depends on the situation. Very rarely do I take a deposit like this up front, typically I simply have people make their first payment when they sign up, but this can change depedning on the nature of yoru siutation. If you don’t think this is a reasonable approace you may want to contact a different trustee, briefly explain your situaiton and see if they would require as large of an initial payment given your situation.
