Once you have decided to file a consumer proposal then it doesn’t make much sense to continue to make your minimum payments on any of your unsecured debt (the debt that will be included in your proposal). If you are not sure you are going to file then you shouold keep making those payments.

There is nothing wrong with making payment arrangements with your creditors before you file a consumer proposal or bankruptcy – if enough of your creditors will work with you then you may not have to file. Of course, if you do file all of those arrangements will stop and the debts will be included/dealt with in your consumer proposal.
