WHY YOU SHOULD WORK WITH A LICENSED INSOLVENCY TRUSTEE
As part of our service to you, we carefully review your financial situation and then explain your options in detail. You will then be able to make an informed choice as to what actions you wish to take to resolve your problems. No matter whether it is your own personal financial difficulties you need to get in order or a restructuring of your business, we can help you gain back control.
Get personalized debt help. A licensed insolvency trustee can assess your personal or corporate financial situation and offer solutions that suit your specific circumstances. You can count on us to clearly explain the available debt-relief options, answer all your questions and help you make an informed decision about your financial future.
Stop collection agency calls. A licensed insolvency trustee can work with you to create a repayment plan that appeases your creditors. We’re also authorized to administer a consumer proposal or bankruptcy on your behalf, both of which will halt collection agency calls and suspend any legal proceedings against you, including wage garnishment.
Learn how to improve your credit score. A licensed insolvency trustee can provide financial and credit counselling to help you rebuild your credit after declaring bankruptcy, exceeding your credit card limit or missing debt payments. We can also help you rein in unhealthy spending habits before they affect your ability to maintain a good credit score.
Pay less interest on your debt. A licensed insolvency trustee can assist you in acquiring a new loan to pay off several outstanding debts. While consolidating your debts won’t reduce the amount you owe, you can usually obtain a loan with a lower interest rate than your credit cards, thereby lowering your monthly payments and helping you pay off your debts sooner.
Simplify student loan debt. A licensed insolvency trustee can propose practical repayment plans specifically designed to reduce the burden of student loan debt. We can also explain whether your student loan debts will be eligible for discharge if you file a consumer proposal or declare personal bankruptcy.
Get help with company insolvency and restructuring. A licensed insolvency trustee can work with entrepreneurs to determine the best course of action for their struggling business. Depending on the severity of the situation, we can help you file a Division 1 proposal or guide you through the process of restructuring your company to promote financial stability.

OUR FOUNDER & APPROACH
Donald A. MacLeod, CA • CIRP, Trustee, 1952 - 2008
Our founder, Donald A. MacLeod, instilled a firm belief of 'family' in the company that has resonated throughout the years since the company was first formed. We treat our clients like our extended family, often providing emotional support as well as sound financial advice to clients experiencing troubles not limited to financial difficulties. We also know that each financial crisis is different so a one-size-fits-all approach is not how we serve clients. We take the time to listen to discover what the root causes are so that we can prepare a solution that is just right for you and your circumstances.
