Should I file a Consumer Proposal in Toronto or the GTA?

If you’re struggling with your finances, you are not alone. Many people have an ongoing problem with debt, especially since it can sneak up on you when you least expect it. One day you’re behind on one bill and the next day you’re months behind on several bills and your finances are spiraling out of control.

What is a Consumer Proposal?

consumer proposal is a deal that you make with your creditors to settle your debt. Usually the total that you pay under the settlement will be an amount that’s less than the total that you owe to your creditors. Typically the deal that you make will involve making monthly payments over time (max 5 years) to the Proposal Administrator but its more manageable as the payment is affordable, tailored to your budget and only once per month.

Is a Consumer Proposal My Best Option?
