Consumer Proposal Ontario
A consumer proposal is the #1 alternative to personal bankruptcy in Ontario
What is a consumer proposal?
Believe it or not, you can get out of debt in Ontario without declaring personal bankruptcy or resorting to costly debt consolidation loans. The government of Canada offers a little-known debt-relief program, called a consumer proposal. A consumer proposal can reduce your debt by up to 80% through a negotiated settlement with your creditors without interest or penalties.
Only Licensed Insolvency Trustees (LIT) like us are federally regulated by the government to guide you through the process. We sincerely care about helping you.

David explains the benefits of a consumer proposal
Our Canadian debt relief solution can help you reduce your debt by up to eighty percent. A consumer proposal is the #1 alternative to personal bankruptcy.
Only a licensed insolvency trustee in Canada can legally help you reach an agreement with your creditors.
Here's an example of how a Consumer Proposal works, Imagine you owe:
Your Debts include:
Step 1: Book your free consultation
After we review your finances, we determined that given your monthly income you can’t possibly repay $100,000 but you could manage to repay $25,000 and still cover your rent or mortgage and other living expenses.
Step 2: We Speak to your creditors
Your Licensed Insolvency Trustee will then take care of all the formal paperwork and present your consumer proposal settlement of $25,000 to the creditors. Most creditors would rather receive a portion of what you owe, rather than have you declare personal bankruptcy where they receive much less, or possibly nothing.
Once your consumer proposal is accepted by your creditors, you will no longer receive harassing collection calls and all high interest charges will stop!
Your $100,000 debt is reduced to:
Step 3: Start paying down your debt
Once your Consumer Proposal is accepted you will make one low monthly payment directly to David Sklar & Associates, consolidating all your debt, without interest and without penalties.
Payments are made monthly over a maximum of five years. You also have the option to repay the total amount at any time. We then disburse the funds to your creditors.
So... where did the rest of the debt go?
The truth of the matter is that the Canadian government would rather have you claim a consumer proposal than a bankruptcy, and your creditors would rather get 20% of your debt than nothing (which is what they would receive if you claimed bankruptcy).
The remaining debt is simply gone.
As long as a licensed insolvency trustee is managing your consumer proposal, there is no catch. As a Canadian citizen, this is yours to use.
