Frequently Asked Questions
Debt relief options in British Columbia include debt consolidation, working with a credit counsellor, consumer proposals, and bankruptcy.
If you possess a stable income and wish to steer clear of bankruptcy, a Consumer proposal might be a viable choice. To determine its suitability for your situation, it is advisable to consult with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee who can assess your circumstances and offer personalized advice.
Their in-depth knowledge and legal authority enable them to negotiate with your creditors and devise a suitable debt management plan tailored to your financial situation.
Yes, Canada does offer government debt relief programs, but they are infrequent and usually limited to specific circumstances, such as severe financial hardship or specific types of loans like student loans.
While government debt relief grants or programs are generally not widely available in Canada, it is possible to reduce a portion of your total debt using a Consumer Proposal. For personalized advice on the best option for you, consulting a Licensed Insolvency Trustee is recommended.
However, it’s important to remember that if you’re already struggling with overwhelming debt and missed payments, your credit rating may already be affected. Working with a reputable debt relief company can help you rebuild your credit over time once you regain financial stability.
On the other hand, debt settlement companies are private entities that negotiate with creditors to settle debts for a reduced amount. It’s important to note that only LITs can administer formal debt relief programs regulated by the government.
A Consumer Proposal is a form of debt consolidation program. It offers a structured debt settlement arrangement, allowing you to reduce your overall debt amount and make affordable monthly payments. Consulting with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee can assist you in determining the best course of action based on your individual financial situation.
Regarding a Consumer Proposal, you will need to pay fees to the Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT) for administering the program. The cost structure will be explained to you during the consultation process with the LIT. Additionally, some programs may offer the option to repay the debt through a lump sum payment if you have access to the necessary funds.
