Win money in contest during bankruptcy

September 13th, 2010 by Questions

If I won money in a contest just before, or just after I filed for bankruptcy, would I get to keep the money?

If you win money either immediately before filing bankruptcy in Canada
or during a bankruptcy, you will loose this money and it will create a disbursement that will go to your creditors.

For reference, you have a legal obligation to disclose this to your trustee and failure to do so may make you ineligible to be discharge.
