With a consumer proposal there is a mechanism built in to the process to allow you to negotiate the amounts with the creditors should they not accept your initial offer. This is typically done by have a creditor meeting called (to extend the period of voting from 45 days to 66 days) and give you a chance to see what the creditors will require and see if you are able to sweeten things enough to get the creditors on board.

However, if the consumer proposal is not accepted and you are not get enough creditors on side or failed to take advantage of this ability to negotiate the terms and the proposal is rejected, then you are not able to offer a second consumer proposal without court permission.
