Is there a difference between an orderly payment of debt, and a consumer proposal, or is that the same thing?

Yes there is a difference, OPD is a mechanism that allows you to pay your debts in full plus 5% interest, where a consumer proposal is method that allows you to negotiate repayment terms that often allow for someone to pay less that the full amount of the debt.
You must be cautions when considering OPD as there are relatively few circumstances where filing under OPD is preferential to filing the proposal. For more information on this you can review the following blog entry, When does OPD make sense and discuss this issue with a licensed trustee in your area.
