co-signers on a foreclosure

If a house goes into foreclosure, the bank sells the house then goes after the debtors for the remaining amount. Could they then go with a consumer proposal and include that amount in the proposal? If so, would that affect the co-signers? If not, would the bank co after the co-signers for the remaining amount?

Yes you can definately look at a consumer proposal in a situation like this. But this proposal would only serve to clear the people who filed the proposal not anyone else. So if there were co-signers they would still be responsible for the remaining amount and the bank would definately pursue them for payment in full.
