If you are referring to a garnishee that you as subject to, then yes, there are a few things that can be considered.

First, you can try to contact CRA directly and negotiate payment arrangements or a potential reduction of the monthly amount taken. Now I wouldn’t expect them to be to sympathetic, but technically you can try.

Second, you could consider borrowing the money to pay the government back. This could be from a bank, family friends etc..

If neither of those work you can contact a local trustee and they will be able to assist you with the filing of either a consumer proposal or a bankruptcy. Both of these have an automatic stay of proceedings that will put an immediate stop to the garnishment you are subject to.
