gifts after bankruptcy

As a single senior with considerable debt to CRA, even my pensions are being heavily garnished. I know I will have to give up my car which is leased and payments too high. My question is, if i am in personal bankruptcy, would I be able to accept a gift from family of an older car for basic transportation?

This likely won’t be an issue as long as you are careful that the vehicle is worth less than the provincial exemption available. However, I would suggest that you contact a local trustee in advance of this to make sure that it is arranged properly and that you don’t cause yourself any problems.
