Advantages and Disadvantages

Evaluating the pros and cons of a consumer proposal. As you can see with our list, the pros outweigh the cons. Many times, a consumer proposal can be the right answer to helping you dealing with your debt and rebuilding your financial future and getting on with your family life.


  • Reduces the amount of debt you have to pay back to your creditors.
  • You have 60 months (5 years) to pay back with installment payments.
  • Your payments will stay the same over the course of 60 months. If you happen to earn more money over this time period, it will not affect your payments. This is not the case with a Bankruptcy.
  • Your credit rating is not impacted as much as with a bankruptcy. With bankruptcy, this will be on your credit history for 6/7 years after completion, while a consumer proposal will be 3 years after completion.
  • Necessitates that all unsecured creditors stop any wage garnishment
  • If your consumer proposal is accepted by the financial majority, you will also get to keep your assets, provided that you fully complete your proposal with no missed payments.
  • Collection Calls will stop.
  • Interest stops accumulating


  • If you miss 3 months payments without filing an amendment to your consumer proposal, it will be annulled,
  • Regardless, your credit score will be affected with a consumer proposal.
  • Does not cover secured debt credit/creditors

I can't praise Cori enough from David Sklar & Associates. Cori's acceptance and understanding of the diverse needs and concerns of her clients shines through with zero judgement. She made this process smooth and relieved much of my stress and anxiety around debt. Thank you!

My husband worked with Chen Siga, he walked us through our options and then through the process of getting everything done. Everyone we dealt with was very helpful. Overall a wonder experience, we are so glad we contacted them and got the help we needed.

I have been surviving on paycheck-to-paycheck basis and could not go any further because the lending interests just accumulated beyond what I can afford. Fortunately, a good friend recommended Grace Cuffaro from David Sklar & Assoc. and I finally got to settle my financial obligations in a reasonable way. Don't go anywhere else; ignore those financial brokers and social media ads who just want more money from you - go directly to the people who can really save you from drowning in debt.
