Consumer Proposals are legislated through the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (BIA) but are not bankruptcies. Neither the ONCA nor the BIA precludes you from incorporating a business during your consumer proposal. Should you wish to incorporate the business federally, The Canada Business Corporations Act has similar criteria to the ONCA and that would also not be a problem.
