Many people struggling with debt in Ontario have considered filing for personal bankruptcy but are concerned about losing their assets and the consequences that follow. In some cases, bankruptcy is the right solution, however, most debt problems can be solved with a Consumer Proposal, the #1 alternative to bankruptcy. A Consumer Proposal is a way of consolidating all your debts and offering to pay your creditors a smaller percentage of what you owe them. It’s a legal agreement you make with the help of a Licensed Insolvency Trustee and is a federally regulated program. It also has several advantages over a bankruptcy, whereby you get to keep all your assets, freezes interest charges, stops collection calls, and stops any legal actions made against you. Once your consumer proposal is accepted you will make one low monthly payment to your Licensed Insolvency Trustee, who will then distribute the funds to all your creditors. Listen in and find out why a Consumer Proposal is the #1 alternative to bankruptcy. Related Links:What is a Consumer Proposal? Proposal or Bankruptcy?

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is, “Will my credit be affected, and will I still be able to use a credit card after I file a consumer proposal?” The short answer is yes, a consumer proposal will impact your credit rating and yes, you will still be able to acquire a credit card after you file. A consumer proposal will have an effect on your credit report, but these effects are temporary and vary depending on the repayment terms of your proposal.  Listen in and find out how you can quickly rebuild your credit after filing for a consumer proposal.Related Links:Can I Apply for Credit During a Consumer Proposal?: Proposal or Bankruptcy?
