Canada Student Loan

October 19th, 2006 by Questions

I finished school in 1996 and still owe 7172.00 for the CIBC Student loan. I was wondering if this is going to stay on my credit record for life. Is it a good Idea to get a claim personal bankruptcy against this outstanding debt.

Thank you,

It may stay on your credit file as long as it remains unpaid and “active” (some one is still trying to collect the debt).

I can’t tell you whether on not you should be filing bankruptcy – you may want to use the search function on this page to find a local trustee to discuss your options with. They will ask you to provide more information regarding your finances and help you determine the course of action that’s best for you.
