I don’t want my employer to know that I am bankrupt

Is there an option that stays private? I don’t want my employer to know that I am bankrupt.

A bankruptcy or proposal is a matter of public record and can be searched at the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy in Ottawa. For some bankruptcies, a notice in the legal section of the local newspaper is also required. However, for most bankruptcies and proposals notices are only sent to your creditors. Your trustee would only need to contact your employer if you were not cooperative in providing proof of your income in a bankruptcy or were not paying the required amount of surplus income to the trustee and the trustee was then forced to obtain an order for the amount to be paid directly by your employer.
