Why should I file a consumer proposal?
A Consumer Proposal allows an individual to avoid personal bankruptcy and can be an effective alternative. A successful Consumer Proposal allows you to keep control of your assets while your unsecured creditors agree to accept a lesser sum than is owing to them in full satisfaction of their claim against you.

• You’re able to repay a portion or your debts, but need more time than your creditors are offering
