CAIRP & Licensed Insolvency Trustees

As of April 1 2016, The Canadian Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals (CAIRP) and its members have a new Directive. Licensed Insolvency Trustee, (LIT) is to replace Trustee in Bankruptcy for all Trustee advertisings.

Reason for the Name Change

The name change to Licensed Insolvency Trustee is designed to help better reflect the scope of services that Trustees offer to their clients and businesses that are experiencing financial hardship.

This name change is to help the public to more easily distinguish licensed Trustees from any unlicensed service providers and to help Canadians to clearly differentiate from the different services that are offered by the Trustees.

The new Licensed Insolvency Trustees designation helps consumers to realize that Trustees offer more than just Bankruptcy, as their service offerings also include credit counselling, consumer proposals and corporate proposals (including div1).

Nearly one quarter of Canadians either know of someone or have themselves used a bankruptcy service (according to a recent Ipsos Reid poll conducted on behalf of CAIRP). This same survey indicated that 60 percent mistakenly thought that debt settlement and credit counselling agency employees were provincially/federally licensed debt-relief professionals.

Better Informed Decisions for its Clients

Businesses and consumers will now be able to make better informed decisions, with the clear designation Licensed Insolvency Trustee, aside from other non-licensed services. The role of a Licensed Insolvency Trustee is to help provide all of the available options to the consumer or business and help them find the best possible solution for them.

This new Directive went into effect April 1, 2016. Trustees will have 12-months to convert all advertising to comply with the OSB directive.

The best decision I've made was to contact David Sklar & Associates, they are experts in this matters and also have dedicated Licensed Counsellors that provide the best customer support, like Rhoda Lewis, who I highly recommend. She worked tirelessly on my case, explaining ever detail to me willingly. She demonstrates a true interest in her clients. I appreciate how she patiently walked me through what to do, step by step. I now have control over my finances, as a result my life is much more peaceful and I can focus on what matters. Thank you!

The service I recieved from David Sklar and Associates was great. I was able to meet with Christin Sylver. She is kind, understanding and, professional. She was able to answer all the quesions that I had regarding my debt. At the end of our meetings, I felt that there is a heavy burden lifted from my shoulders. I recommend Chistine to anyone who is looking into debt relief.
