Licensed Insolvency Trustees Calgary

Personal Bankruptcy

In Calgary & Southern Alberta

What Is Personal Bankruptcy?

Personal Bankruptcy is a legal process, regulated by the government of Canada, that releases you from your debts, stops collection calls, ends wage garnishment and legally protects you from your creditors. It is a way for unfortunate Canadians to get out of debt and have a fresh start.

If you are considering filing for personal bankruptcy, it is important to understand the process and the options that are available. Yes, you have options.  Licensed Insolvency Trustees are the only professionals in Canada who can prepare and administer personal bankruptcy filings. At Hudson & Company, our first priority is making sure that you are well informed and understand all of the options that are available to you.

Where Should I Start?

The best way to understand how personal bankruptcy may impact you is a free consultation with one of our Trustees. We will look at your debt situation, with consideration for your unique circumstances and what you are hoping to achieve. We will review all of the available options with you and answer any questions you may have.

Getting Discharged

When will I be discharged from bankruptcy?

To determine whether you qualify for personal bankruptcy, begin by asking yourself the following questions:

  • Do you utilize credit cards to make payments on a regular basis?
  • Are you able to only cover interest charges in your monthly payments instead of steadily lowering the overall obligation?
  • Have you had your utilities shut off due to an inability to pay?
  • Are your wages being garnished to help repay your debts?
  • Do you obtain frequent cash advances to make ends meet until your next payday?
  • Do calls from your creditors lead to your avoidance of answering the phone?

When Is Personal Bankruptcy a Good Idea?

Insolvency affects thousands of honest but unfortunate Canadians every year. Being insolvent means that you are simply unable to pay off all your debts. If you find yourself in this position it is important to know that you have options. A great first step is meeting with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee for a free consultation meeting. They will review your situation and show you what options are available. The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada is the regulatory body that licenses and regulates Licensed Insolvency Trustees. These are highly trained debt counsellors and the only professionals in Canada that can administer bankruptcy or consumer proposals.

Why Meet With A Licensed Insolvency Trustee?

While we do our best to provide information and answer general questions on our website, insolvency is a complex matter. A Licensed Insolvency Trustee can review your personal situation and show you which options are available. They can explain how the laws and regulations apply in your circumstances and they can address your specific concerns in detail. An initial consultation meeting is free and confidential. There are no risks associated with meeting a Licensed Insolvency Trustee and there is no obligation to move forward or return.

Life changing experience - wish I knew about this sooner. Stephan and his team made the process seamless and easy. From the initial consultation I knew exactly what I was looking at, and what the process would look like if I chose to move forward. No pressure environment, he was upfront about fees and how my options would impact those fees. Can't say enough about my experience, very quickly my life has completely changed. If you're stuck financially at least go for a consultation and see if there are options for you.. feels great to breathe again!

My first meeting was with Richard Price, and my second with Jeff Price. I later dealt with Jeff and some of his team - Breanna Burkard-Smith, Nicci Johnson and James Doney. I have no words for how professional, compassionate, and kind all of these individuals were to me during one of the most difficult and financially embarrassing times in my life....I am so grateful to them all for their prompt responses to my many questions and would recommend them to anyone who is struggling with heavy financial burdens and how to move into the next step of re-building their financial lives. Amazing people here...so grateful to have found this company. Don't hesitate to call Hudson & Co. - they are brilliant and I recommend them to everyone I know.

Steve Cook gave me the best advice. I have done so much research in regards to my situation. I have contacted 10 other firms.I have decided to wait, however I wanted to write this review cause there are so many company's out there that are ready to help but are they really helping you the correct way and are they giving you the correct information?? Well from my experience with Steve he was amzing no judgment on his end as the list of collection's went on and on. The costs are pretty much the same who ever you call.Steve is honest and and went above and beyond. Trying to make me see the light at the end of the tunnel.At the end of the day no matter who you chooseTo help you make sure you feel comfortable with them. Thank you for all information

I worked with Jeff on a proposal that had nuances and extended over 4.5 years. Jeff and his team were highly responsive and worked with me to ensure that the proposal flowed smoothly. Even though Proposals are not fun, the process worked well and I would recommend Jeff and his team to anyone needing assistance to reorganize their financial affairs.

Jeff was amazing. Having been caught on the financial roller coaster that is Alberta these days my household got to a point were we were using credit to pay bills. Sound Familiar? Called Jeff and was greeted warmly and walked through our options. Not once did Jeff make us feel awkward or shamed in any way and at the end of the day got my family on track to dig ourselves out of our mess. If you are struggling with debt like SOOO many others in Alberta, call them, they can and really do help.Thank you Jeff.

At a time when I felt nothing could pull me out of the depression I was in due to overwhelming debt, Jeff Price at Hudson & Company helped put me on track to dealing with mutiple creditors within my means. It was a difficult road but all worth it in the end. They were always good at communicating with me, answering all of my questions and giving great counseling on budgeting and rebuilding credit during the bankruptcy process. I still have additional payments to make, but having a plan in place and knowing exactly what it will take to get there within my budget, has lifted a huge weight off of me. I feel The colaborative efforts of Jeff and his team at Hudson have truly given me and my family new hope for the future.Thanks Hudson & Company,Michael.

Hudson & Company was the third debt resolution business I went to and quite frankly, I didn't have much hope. Jeff helped me see a resolution. By being informative and taking the time to explain the different aspects of my options, I left the office with a sense of hope that I did not get from the other companies. Although I'm only in the first stage of the process, I have faith that Jeff will get a proposal agreement that will work for me.

This is really a two-part review. The first part for Hudson and Co’s knowledge and expertise and secondly and just as important, for the personal side of working with Bruce and his team.My wife and I met with Bruce at time when we thought there was no hope for our financial situation and we didn’t know what to do about it. We were very unsure of what to expect going into the meeting with Bruce, but remember coming away from the meeting feeling like a weight had been taken off our shoulders with a plan and hope for the future.Bruce is a genuine person who does not judge or make you feel lesser of a person, in fact it is very much the opposite and very unbiased. During our meetings Bruce made us feel comfortable, treated us with dignity and respect and made us feel good about ourselves again.Bruce’s knowledge and commitment to helping people is second to none. He looked at our situation and told us exactly where we stood and what was needed to sort it out. He went through in detail the different options available to us and help us go through the process step by step.We cannot thank Bruce enough and have a lot of respect for him and his team, not just for his knowledge and being able to help us get back on our feet financially again, but also for making us feel good about ourselves again. To us, the way Bruce made us feel from start to finish was priceless.Thank you Bruce and all of your team.

Hudson & Company offers a free consultation. We found it very informative. The options presented by Mr. Bruce Hudson were clear and helpful toward our course of action. We were able to avoid bankruptcy, and were comfortable in the payment schedule presented and agreed upon by our creditors. Mr. Hudson and his associates have acted responsibly and have been available over the past 3 1/2 years, for any of our inquiries. We would enthusiastically recommend Hudson & Company with a 5 Star rating, to anyone desiring financial advice. Thank you Bruce, and associates, for your care and advice.SM

We met with Bruce to discuss our financial circumstance and he was very helpful. He waited for us to explain our situation and asked any additional questions. He never judged us and always remained neutral. He gave us the best outcome and some other options that were out there. Really appreciated the advice and the fact it was unbiased and looked out for our best interest regardless if he obtained business from us.We would recommend Bruce to anyone who has financial questions or difficulties.

I had the experience of a lifetime with this company. Started with Stephen and ended up with Breanna. They went far and beyond my expectations, not only they took care of all my complex situation but also made sure to went over again details and assuring that I was gonna make the best decision based on my personal interest. I was specially amazed by Breanna’s flexibility to accommodate to my schedule even on a 7 am Zoom conference on a Monday. Whenever I send them an email their response comes back in a promptly manner. I cannot thank them enough!

Every step of the painful process of filing a bankruptcy, is managed by the professionals of Hudson and Company in a compassionate, assertive but comforting way.

My first meeting was with Richard Price, and my second with Jeff Price. I later dealt with Jeff and some of his team - Breanna Burkard-Smith, Nicci Johnson and James Doney. I have no words for how professional, compassionate, and kind all of these individuals were to me during one of the most difficult and financially embarrassing times in my life....I am so grateful to them all for their prompt responses to my many questions and would recommend them to anyone who is struggling with heavy financial burdens and how to move into the next step of re-building their financial lives. Amazing people here...so grateful to have found this company. Don't hesitate to call Hudson & Co. - they are brilliant and I recommend them to everyone I know.

Steve Cook gave me the best advice. I have done so much research in regards to my situation. I have contacted 10 other firms.I have decided to wait, however I wanted to write this review cause there are so many company's out there that are ready to help but are they really helping you the correct way and are they giving you the correct information?? Well from my experience with Steve he was amzing no judgment on his end as the list of collection's went on and on. The costs are pretty much the same who ever you call.Steve is honest and and went above and beyond. Trying to make me see the light at the end of the tunnel.At the end of the day no matter who you chooseTo help you make sure you feel comfortable with them. Thank you for all information

I worked with Jeff on a proposal that had nuances and extended over 4.5 years. Jeff and his team were highly responsive and worked with me to ensure that the proposal flowed smoothly. Even though Proposals are not fun, the process worked well and I would recommend Jeff and his team to anyone needing assistance to reorganize their financial affairs.

Jeff was amazing. Having been caught on the financial roller coaster that is Alberta these days my household got to a point were we were using credit to pay bills. Sound Familiar? Called Jeff and was greeted warmly and walked through our options. Not once did Jeff make us feel awkward or shamed in any way and at the end of the day got my family on track to dig ourselves out of our mess. If you are struggling with debt like SOOO many others in Alberta, call them, they can and really do help.Thank you Jeff.

I really cannot recommend Jeff Price and the team at Hudson & Company enough. Jeff helped me navigate one of the biggest (and most emotional!) decisions of my life. It felt overwhelming, but together with the lovely Shelley Westmorland, Jeff armed me with the knowledge and confidence I needed to make the right decision for me. They treated me with kindness, patience, and warm professionalism at every turn. Thank you Jeff & Shelley, I am so appreciative for all of your help!

At a time when I felt nothing could pull me out of the depression I was in due to overwhelming debt, Jeff Price at Hudson & Company helped put me on track to dealing with mutiple creditors within my means. It was a difficult road but all worth it in the end. They were always good at communicating with me, answering all of my questions and giving great counseling on budgeting and rebuilding credit during the bankruptcy process. I still have additional payments to make, but having a plan in place and knowing exactly what it will take to get there within my budget, has lifted a huge weight off of me. I feel The colaborative efforts of Jeff and his team at Hudson have truly given me and my family new hope for the future.Thanks Hudson & Company,Michael.

Hudson & Company was the third debt resolution business I went to and quite frankly, I didn't have much hope. Jeff helped me see a resolution. By being informative and taking the time to explain the different aspects of my options, I left the office with a sense of hope that I did not get from the other companies. Although I'm only in the first stage of the process, I have faith that Jeff will get a proposal agreement that will work for me.

This is really a two-part review. The first part for Hudson and Co’s knowledge and expertise and secondly and just as important, for the personal side of working with Bruce and his team.My wife and I met with Bruce at time when we thought there was no hope for our financial situation and we didn’t know what to do about it. We were very unsure of what to expect going into the meeting with Bruce, but remember coming away from the meeting feeling like a weight had been taken off our shoulders with a plan and hope for the future.Bruce is a genuine person who does not judge or make you feel lesser of a person, in fact it is very much the opposite and very unbiased. During our meetings Bruce made us feel comfortable, treated us with dignity and respect and made us feel good about ourselves again.Bruce’s knowledge and commitment to helping people is second to none. He looked at our situation and told us exactly where we stood and what was needed to sort it out. He went through in detail the different options available to us and help us go through the process step by step.We cannot thank Bruce enough and have a lot of respect for him and his team, not just for his knowledge and being able to help us get back on our feet financially again, but also for making us feel good about ourselves again. To us, the way Bruce made us feel from start to finish was priceless.Thank you Bruce and all of your team.

Hudson & Company offers a free consultation. We found it very informative. The options presented by Mr. Bruce Hudson were clear and helpful toward our course of action. We were able to avoid bankruptcy, and were comfortable in the payment schedule presented and agreed upon by our creditors. Mr. Hudson and his associates have acted responsibly and have been available over the past 3 1/2 years, for any of our inquiries. We would enthusiastically recommend Hudson & Company with a 5 Star rating, to anyone desiring financial advice. Thank you Bruce, and associates, for your care and advice.SM

We met with Bruce to discuss our financial circumstance and he was very helpful. He waited for us to explain our situation and asked any additional questions. He never judged us and always remained neutral. He gave us the best outcome and some other options that were out there. Really appreciated the advice and the fact it was unbiased and looked out for our best interest regardless if he obtained business from us.We would recommend Bruce to anyone who has financial questions or difficulties.

Frequently Asked Bankruptcy Questions

Here we explore common considerations and frequently asked questions about bankruptcy to help you determine if it is a good idea for you. It is important to know that there are alternatives to bankruptcy, even in dire circumstances. Part of knowing if bankruptcy is a good idea is determining if you have any other options available. A Licensed Insolvency Trustee can help identify what options are available based on your unique situation. Once all other options are considered, bankruptcy is the last resort to get rid of debt and get your life back on track.

Will Bankruptcy Affect My Spouse?

No. Filing for personal bankruptcy in Canada does not directly affect your spouse. Your spouse is only responsible for their own debts and their portion of any shared debt. Your personal debts are separate.

If your spouse has co-signed or personally guaranteed any of your debts, then they will continue to be responsible for the debts if you are personally unable to pay. This is also the case with shared debt such a joint credit card account.

You and your spouse may have the option to file jointly. This is possible when all or most of your debts are shared. In this case you can avoid costs associated with filing personal bankruptcy for both spouses individually. It is important to note that in this case, the procedures are tied together and one spouse’s failure to follow procedure can stop the other from being discharged.

Talk to a Licensed Insolvency Trustee for help determining the best option based on your debt and family situation. As always, there are multiple ways to approach insolvency.

Will Bankruptcy Affect My Job?

It is illegal in Canada for your employer to fire you for declaring bankruptcy. In most cases you don’t even have to disclose it to them. In some cases, the position you hold or the jobs you can do may be restricted. This is more common in finance, legal and security professions.

If you hold a professional designation you should check the professional guidelines that are enforced by the regulatory body for any implications.

If you are in a position which may be affected by bankruptcy, talk to a Licensed Insolvency Trustee. They can help you work through the situation to find the most appropriate solution.

Will Bankruptcy Eliminate Tax Debt?

Yes. Bankruptcy can eliminate Tax debt

Without a bankruptcy or proposal, the CRA will generally not accept anything other than the full amount for any income tax debt. If you owe the CRA money, they may be able to freeze your bank account or garnish your wages without going through the courts. If you have a business, they can also go directly to your customers and have them pay them rather than you. If you are insolvent and unable to pay, declaring bankruptcy with the help of a Licensed Insolvency Trustee is one of the only ways to eliminate the debt.

Will Bankruptcy Stop Student Loans?

A discharge from bankruptcy can release you from your student loan repayment obligations if you filed for bankruptcy at least seven years from the time that you stopped being a full-time student. If you haven’t been a full-time student for more than seven years and you are now considering bankruptcy, you can expect to be able to include your student loan debt. In some cases, the court can reduce this period from seven years to five.

Will Bankruptcy Stop Wage Garnishment?

Yes. Once you declare bankruptcy your wages are protected from garnishment.

A wage garnishment is a court order that redirects a portion of your earned wages to a creditor. If your wages are being garnished, part of your pay-cheque is taken to pay back a specific debt. Anyone you owe money to can submit their claim to the court. If a judgement is granted in their favour, they have the option to contact your employer to garnish your wages (they may also have the option to seize cash from your bank account).

As soon as you sign the bankruptcy documents there is an “immediate stay of proceedings”. This puts an immediate stop to any current garnishment and provides legal protection against future garnishment.

Will Bankruptcy Stop a Judgement?

Short answer = Sometimes. If the judgement arises from a lawsuit involving unpaid debts, the lender or creditor may be able to garnish your wages or access your personal assets to satisfy the judgement. In cases such as this, declaring bankruptcy would stop the garnishment and discharge the debt. If such a lawsuit is pending at the time you declare bankruptcy, it will be stopped.

There are non-dischargeable debts that may arise from a judgement against you. In these cases, declaring bankruptcy will not eliminate the debt. Non-dischargeable judgements can arise from issues related to:

  • child support or alimony
  • criminal penalties or fines
  • certain taxes
  • debts arising from fraudulent activity
  • death or injury caused by drunk driving
  • willful and malicious injury caused by the debtor

So, judgements arising from regular unpaid debts can be included in a bankruptcy filing, but judgements arising from criminal activity or child/spouse support cannot be included.

Will Bankruptcy Affect My Car Insurance?

The effects of bankruptcy on your auto insurance are minimal in Alberta and you will generally not have to worry. When you declare bankruptcy, it is reported to the credit bureaus that determine your “credit score”. Some insurance companies in Canada are now using credit scores to underwrite auto insurance policies. The practice is different in each province due to legislative restrictions. In some provinces it is illegal for an insurance company to use your credit score to influence auto insurance rates. In Alberta, an insurer must get your explicit consent prior to looking at your credit score and you can say no.

If you are currently receiving a discount for having “good credit” you may no longer qualify for the discount.

Will Bankruptcy Affect My Credit?

Yes. In Canada there are two major credit reporting agencies, Equifax and TransUnion. They keep track of your credit history and provide reports to lenders. When you file for bankruptcy it is reported to these agencies. If you are declaring bankruptcy for the first time, it will be included on your credit reports for as long as seven years following your discharge. If it is your second time declaring bankruptcy it will be included for up to 14 years following your discharge.

Equifax uses a scale from R1 to R9 (R1 = perfect credit). Declaring bankruptcy will result in a rating of R9.

Can Bankruptcy Stop a Foreclosure?

No. Bankruptcy in Canada does not include secured debt. Your mortgage is secured because it is tied to a physical asset (your home). This means that the value of the mortgage is guaranteed to the lender by their ability to recover the value from your home. If you stop making your mortgage payments the lender has the legal right to foreclose and recover any amounts owed to them.

Declaring bankruptcy will not stop a foreclosure but seeking help early on may help you manage your insolvency before it is too late. As long as you are able to continue making your mortgage payments you can avoid foreclosure.

Will Bankruptcy Stop Bailiff Enforcement Action?

Short answer = Sometimes. If there is a judgement against you for unpaid debts, the creditor can begin to take action towards seizing your personal property. This is done through a Civil Enforcement Agency that employs Bailiffs to collect on your outstanding debts. The Bailiff may be able to take away and sell property such as: your vehicle, your home, cash, luxury items, and jointly-owned possessions. In the case of unpaid debt, filing for bankruptcy would discharge the debt and there would be a “stay of proceedings”.

Civil Enforcement Agencies can get involved for different reasons, including unpaid child and spouse support, court orders (mentioned above), parking fines, unpaid rent, and unpaid taxes. There are non-dischargeable debts that do not go away with bankruptcy. These include any judgements involving:

  • child support or alimony
  • criminal penalties or fines
  • certain taxes
  • debts arising from fraudulent activity
  • death or injury caused by drunk driving
  • willful and malicious injury caused by the debtor

In these cases declaring bankruptcy will not prohibit a bailiff from continuing their duties.
