Consumer proposals are popular bankruptcy alternatives available to people experiencing financial stress. A consumer proposal allows a person or business that is unable to keep up with their financial obligations to propose an interest free repayment schedule to their creditors. This repayment schedule usually includes a reduction in the amount owing, usually ranging from 50% - 75%, and lasting 60 months. Once a consumer proposal is accepted, it is a legally binding contract that can only be broken if the debtor stops making payments, or if it is discovered that the debt was incurred by illegal means.

How does a consumer proposal affect my credit? A consumer proposal stays on your credit report for three years from the date of the last payment.

In Ontario, you are allowed to apply for secured credit after a minimum of six months of payments towards your proposal.
