Is Consumer Proposal Considered a Bankruptcy?

March 7th, 2011 by Questions

Just wondering if Consumer Proposal is actually considered a Bankruptcy? I understand that it falls under the Bankruptcy Act? So if posed the question “did you ever file for bankruptcy” would you answer yes?

Thanks!

No, a consumer proposal and a bankruptcy are two distinct options. In fact the consumer proposals was created as an alternative to filing bankruptcy so that people with a little more means wouldn’t be forced to file a bankruptcy. The each have a different impact on your credit, both in the short and long term and have different duties and responsibilities associated with them.
