Certified licensed professionals

Licensed Insolvency Trustees are not just federally licensed. They are federally regulated, too by the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy (OSB) to ensure that they’re upholding the high standards of the job and not violating a strict code of ethics. These rules are in place to guarantee Canadians the support that they need when they’re at their most vulnerable.

How we can help with debt in Pembroke?

Consumer Proposal is a legally binding agreement offered by the federal government that significantly reduces the amount of debt you owe to your creditors. A consumer proposal is a popular alternative to bankruptcy as it consolidates and reduces the total amount of debt you owe, stops accumulating interest charges, stops wage garnishment, stops legal action, provides relief from collection calls and allows you to keep your assets. 

At David Sklar & Associates we will help you every step of the way through the proposal process to present the best offer possible to your creditors. After your proposal is accepted by your creditors you will be asked to make monthly payments for up to 5 years, that are based on your income, expenses, assets and what you can afford to pay. The proposal is a fair solution for everyone involved. Speak to our Licensed Insolvency Trustee first to understand all of your options.

Learn more about Consumer Proposals

We understand that most of the people we help never imagined they would find themselves in such a difficult financial crisis. Most of the people we work with tend to be hard-working, honest people who, often for reasons beyond their control, are simply not able to pay back their debts.

Before we recommend personal bankruptcy, we work closely with you to see if any other debt repayment options can be used as an alternative, like a Consumer Proposal. Only when we are satisfied that personal bankruptcy is in your best interest, do we recommend this process. Speak to our Licensed Insolvency Trustee first to understand all of your options.

We’ve all seen the ads claiming how a debt consolidation loans can get you out of financial trouble and reduce your monthly payments. Yet, you should know there can be significant risks with this approach.

If you have missed even one payment or received a collection call, it may be too late to qualify for a bank loan. To get a debt consolidation loan from a bank, you will need a spotless credit history, steady income, equity in your home or a co-signer.

If you use the equity in your home and are unable to make the payments, you could lose your home. Frequently, people who take out debt consolidation loans don’t know about the hidden high interest fees and find themselves in even more debt than before.

Speak to our Licensed Insolvency Trustee first to understand all of your options.

Income Tax debt can be a difficult challenge to overcome. Our Licensed Insolvency Trustee’s help people who are overwhelmed by their debt load and have fallen behind filing their Income Tax. We can help negotiate with Revenue Canada to accept a reduced amount on your outstanding taxes and put a stop to the interest charges and penalties.

During your free consultation we will discuss all your options and help you prepare the required documentation. This will include getting your Income Tax reporting up to date. We will then speak to CRA on your behalf and request a reduction to your unpaid taxes.

The results of filing vary from situation to situation, but our experience has been that Revenue Canada is reasonable in its handling of people looking to resolve their debts and not avoid financial responsibilities.

Payday loans are short-term loans that are not borrowed from banks. Instead, they are borrowed from private companies.

What makes payday loans so attractive to someone struggling to make ends meet is that they’re very easy to get. However, they can become a debt trap, since they are exempt from the 60% interest rate limitation. Therefore, the annual interest rate on a payday loan is close to 400% or higher if you miss payments.

We can help you determine the best option for you to help you out of the payday loan debt trap.

Your mortgage and car debt are both examples of secured debt. This means that when you borrowed money to pay for your house or your car, the bank loaned you the money because they could easily take the asset back if you can’t make your payments.

Is a consumer proposal right for you?

Consumer proposals are interest-free, so you may find it more manageable to cover your mortgage and car payments that way. Consumer proposals will not allow you to include secured debt (like your mortgage or car loans), but you will be able to reduce other forms of debt by up to 80%.

When you need or want an expensive item and interest rates are low, it’s hard to resist the temptation to take out a line of credit rather than waiting until you have enough saved up to make the purchase yourself. This cycle of borrowing instead of saving is very easy to fall into.

Do you have a line of credit, overdraft protection, or other personal loans that you’re trying to pay off? You may be struggling to come up with the payments. When you’re also paying for housing expenses, food, and clothing, those debts can quickly get way over your head.

(And we have all been there so we say this with no judgement!)

I was a little nervous going into my consumer proposal with David Sklar & Associates as I had a horrible experience attempting to file with a different group.Following the first correspondence, I immediately felt much more relaxed and confident in my decision.Beatriz was incredible! I feel so lucky to have had her working with me.She was friendly and kind, professional, patient, considerate, and caring. I felt no judgment in anyway. Honestly, speaking with her regarding my debt felt like I was speaking with a family member – just very easy to discuss how I ended up in my financial situation and being met with understanding, no judgment.Mark was also very kind and made sure that I understood what was discussed and was open to going over it again if needed prior to signing.David Sklar & Associates is the team you want handling and assisting you with your debt. I have only positive things to say about them and will 100% recommend them to anyone if the situation ever arises.
