Automatically upon the filing of an Assignment in bankruptcy a Stay of Proceedings comes into operation that prevents creditors from talking any further action for the collection of debts. This includes serving garnishment orders. Exempt assets in a bankruptcy are exempt because the exemption is allowed under federal or provincial law. As such these funds would not be subject to a garnishment order notwithstanding the bankruptcy. If the judgement represents a claim for a debt not dischargeable in bankruptcy the creditor may pursue it but would still require the leave of the Court before any action was taken.
