This is typically not a problem as long as you are currently up to date on the car loan and can afford to make the monthly payments. However, there is a caveat, this is the typical scenario but it is entirely up to the secured lender.

Technically a secured loan operates outside of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, but the lender retains the right to seize the property simply as a result of the Bankruptcy. While this is not normal practice for most institutions, it is technically possible.

My recommendation would be to contact a local trustee local trustee and confirm how the lender in questions typicaly acts in yoru area, but chances are unless you dealing with the Royal Bank it isn’t abnormal.
