Types of Bankruptcy in Canada

Within bankruptcy there are two main types of bankruptcy. One covers business bankruptcy and personal bankruptcy and the other covers personal bankruptcy only.

Personal Bankruptcy

It’s important to know how bankruptcy works and also to find out all of the options that are available for you. When you go to meet with your Trustee, your financial information will be reviewed to help determine which avenue is the best for you. See our page on the personal bankruptcy process for more information on this topic.

Small Business Bankruptcy

If a business is working under sole proprietorship or as a partnership, then the business bankruptcy is essentially treated as a personal bankruptcy. In the case of sole proprietorship or partnership, the people are acting as the business, and their personal assets are not separated from their business assets.

Incorporated Business Filing bankruptcy

If the company in question is an incorporated business, then the assets and the business are their own entity. Having a business incorporated helps to protect the personal assets from the business creditors.

Corporate Bankruptcy

If your corporation is having financial difficulties, the earlier that you make an appointment to meet with a Trustee, the more options there may be to deal with your case. We can review all the options available to help see what the best solution is and possibly avoid a bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Protection and Insolvency

While the term Bankruptcy Protection is a U.S. term, it is referring to when a business/company is declared insolvent. Insolvency is the failure of a business or an individual or to pay their debts when they are due. In the case of a business – it can also occur if the total value of debts is larger than the total value of the assets.

Christine Sylver was very helpful to my situation. No question asked, she went above and beyond just to give me the options that I need to solve my problems. She explained and made me understand my options. Thank you Christine! Everything was done in a week. Regards, to Richard Sklar for explaining everything further to me. 😊
I was blown away by how kind and empathetic Christine and David were. I came into the process expecting to feel embarrassed, but they were so helpful and unquestionably supportive, they made the whole experience a positive thing. On top of that, Christine found a solution for me that was better than I ever could have imagined. I highly recommend Christine, David, and colleagues to anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Jackie and she made the experience very easy and was very honest which I appreciated as I was extremely nervous to go through with the process. Any questions or concerns I've had after our meetings were answered no problems and although it's been a few weeks I can honestly say I've never felt so stress-free. Very thankful for Jackie.

My mother told me about this firm because they helped resolve her situation nearly 25 years ago. I had the pleasure of working with Christine Sylver. I should’ve done this years ago but I am where I am and it is what it is. Extremely courteous, professional and understanding. I hope to never need their services again but they would be my first call! A+
