Canada is a welcoming place. People from across the globe have been choosing to immigrate here for generations and have, in return for new opportunities, given back more than could have been expected. Our country is richer for their presence.
However, adapting to Canada is not an easy proposition: we have two languages, severe winters, great distances to travel to get anywhere and a financial system that can seem alien to many people.
Our system financial is built on contractual obligations and risk management. We give opportunity and choices and work to help everyone maximize their potential to flourish. The flip side of this, is when things go badly, legitimate endeavors fail or when our system is simply not properly understood… bills pile up, collection calls start, wage garnishments and even forced execution on assets can begin. Our system, at this point, can be very difficult.
It is natural to think that one must be Canadian to benefit from Canadian law. The second thought is that someone may be able to sell us a solution. A final concern may be that insolvency legislation is punitive. It is time to move away from stereotypes, fear and quick fix solutions that often don’t work or more often than not, even cause more hardship.
Here are 5 things you need to know if you are not a Canadian citizen and need help with financial problems:
It is based on business law, not criminal law; it allows for sanctioning of bad financial behavior, but its objective is financial rehabilitation for honest debtors.
As long as a person’s obligations under the law are met, there is no restriction on travel in Canada or internationally.
Under immigration law, being in bankruptcy will restrict your right to sponsor a family member that wants to immigrate to Canada. Once you are discharged from bankruptcy (usually within 1 to 3 years), that restriction will go away and the normal sponsorship process can be started.
Bankruptcy will restrict certain financial transactions and leave a negative mark in your credit report that will make getting credit harder for a certain time, but this applies to everyone that files a bankruptcy.
The Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act is designed to allow a person in financial trouble to start a life free of the burden of crushing debt… no passport required.
