For some, gambling leads to a situation where you can't pay your bills and debts when they are due. This is incredibly stressful. Listen now to hear about two options for addressing insolvency: a consumer proposal and personal bankruptcy.

Blair Mantin, a Licensed Insolvency Trustee and President of Sands and Associates, joins me in this episode. He answers common questions about insolvency proceedings, including:

  • Who is eligible for a consumer proposal and bankruptcy? What is involved? What will it cost?
  • Will this impact my credit rating? Do I have to get rid of my car, home and/or RRSP? Are tax debt and student loans included?
  • How will it impact my spouse if I go ahead with a consumer proposal or bankruptcy?
  • What are the differences with bankruptcy proceedings in Canada and the United States?
  • How do I find a Licensed Insolvency Trustee?
