When facing serious financial difficulty, clients need solid, sober advice regarding their options. When debts cannot be managed, there are generally two options: filing a proposal or filing for bankruptcy, both under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. To either file a proposal or go bankrupt, it is necessary for a person to be insolvent, which means you must owe at least $1,000 and be unable to meet debts as they are due to be paid.
