Good to know: the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy (OSB)

The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy regulates, monitors and controls all aspects of insolvency in Canada. Its main mission is to ensure integrity and fairness in insolvency proceedings. This organization protects the interests of all parties involved, whether debtors or creditors.

The OSB oversees the licensing and conduct of licensed insolvency trustees. It ensures that insolvency processes comply with precise standards. These guidelines defined by the BSF ensure a uniform and fair approach to the treatment of insolvency situations.

Can I go bankrupt?

To file for bankruptcy, you must be a Canadian citizen, have a Canadian address and have more than $1,000 in debts. You must be insolvent, which means that you are unable to pay your debts as they become due.

When to declare bankruptcy?

You decide when, however, there may be important signals that it is time to take action:

  • You’re constantly being called by collection agencies, even at work;
  • A lender or the government has garnished your wages;
  • Your bank account is frozen or seized;
  • Your debts are the main topic of conversation in your relationship, or they create divergence;
  • Your debts affect your sleep or your health;
  • You need to borrow from family or friends to meet your obligations.

You always choose when, but you can do it before you get there.

If I go bankrupt, what happens to my property, my furniture?

The law allows you to keep up to $7,000 of the current market value of your personal property. In fact, in most cases, your trustee will evaluate your belongings and agree with you that you can keep all your furniture from your main residence as well as your clothing necessary for everyday life.

Your RRSPs are also exempt from seizure for contributions made more than twelve months before the bankruptcy.

What is the impact of a bankruptcy on my credit report?

Contacting a member of our team to have your situation evaluated does not affect your credit rating. This myth is false: it’s only when the bankruptcy process is triggered that this will be the case, not before.

However, once the process has begun, abankruptcy will result in an R9 rating on your credit file, and this rating will remain not only during the bankruptcy period, but also for six years after your discharge. What’s more, your credit rating is already affected if you’ve been having trouble repaying your debts for some time, or if you’re subject to recourse by your creditors.

What is the alternative to personal bankruptcy?

A consumer proposal is an option to consider. If your debts are less than $10,000, you can also consider a voluntary deposit.

A licensed trustee will be able to agree with you on the best option.

Who are the creditors?

There are different types of creditors:

  • Secured creditors :
    • A hypothecary creditor (e.g. mortgage on a house);
    • An instalment sale (e.g. car financing);
    • Reservation of title;
    • A rental and a buy-back;
  • Ordinary creditors :
    • Any other creditor who does not have a security interest to publish against one of your assets:
      • A personal loan;
      • A line of credit;
      • A credit card;
      • Taxes;
      • Goods and services;
    • Creditors who retain their recourse despite bankruptcy or a consumer proposal:
      • A secured creditor, if you keep the property;
      • Alimony;
      • A parking ticket;
      • Overpayment of employment insurance or income security benefits;
      • A criminal judgment;
      • A student loan if you completed your studies less than 7 years before submitting your application.
What's happening to my spouse and children?

They are not affected by your bankruptcy unless the debts are joint. In this way, your spouse becomes responsible for all joint debts.

What happens to my house if I go bankrupt?

If you are no longer able to pay your mortgage, your bank can take it over and sell it.

Several other contexts may exist and we advise you to consult us to discuss them.

Can I keep a credit card in bankruptcy?

No. As a bankrupt you cannot apply for or incur credit.
