Our mortgage is greater than the value of the property. We also have unsecured debt and will be filing a consumer proposal.

Question: Is the remaining debt on the property after a foreclosure treated any different than the remaining debt after a sale?

Is the remaining debt still eligible to be a part of a Consumer Proposal even if the Bank gets a Court Judgement for the balance?

Certainly – the critical event is your moving out of the house and surrendering it to the mortgage company. After you do that you may file a proposal and if there is a shortfall on the house the debt will be included in your proposal.
