To save yourself frustration and stress, it’s important to work with professionals who offer long-term solutions to eliminate your debt. At MNP, we are licensed by the federal government. One of the debt solutions we offer is a consumer proposal. As more consumers become aware of this option, the percentage of consumer proposals filed in Canada is steadily increasing.  Consumers are seeing the potential benefits of filing for a consumer proposal instead of filing for bankruptcy or other options to service debt, like taking out a second mortgage or consolidation loan.

A consumer proposal has many benefits including:

  • Make one interest-free affordable monthly payment;
  • Payments based on your budget and ability to pay;
  • Reduce yourrall debt by as much as 70%;
  • Tax debt, consumer credit card debt, loans and old household bills can be included;
  • Ability to keep your house, car and RRSPs; and,
  • Stops collection and legal action by creditors, including wage garnishments (not related to child or spousal support).
