Our Process

You’ve made the difficult decision to explore personal or corporate debt restructuring and now you’re wondering, “What happens next?”

First, let us say congratulations. It isn’t always easy deciding that you need assistance, but it’s more common than you know and the earlier you start, the better the chance for a positive outcome.

Next, understand that we want to make the entire process as easy and positive as possible. We will never judge or pressure you; we are only here to help.

Our process begins with information gathering. We have a responsibility to collect as many details about your financial situation as possible so we know exactly what we’re dealing with.

After we have collected the information, our team, including a Licensed Insolvency Trustee, will determine the most advantageous option and present it to you, carefully explaining all of the pros and cons.

After that, you are certainly welcome to take the information home and think about it to see if you have any further questions.

When you make the decision to proceed, our experts do the heavy lifting and work with you, side by side, until the project is completed.

Our process ends when your brighter days begin.

Ask an Expert

When Faber invites you to ask an expert, we’re talking about our Licensed Insolvency Trustees (LITs). LITs are qualified, federally regulated experts who are held to a high standard of professional conduct and code of ethics when providing services and performing their duties.

LITs are the only professionals authorized to administer government-regulated insolvency proceedings that allow you to be discharged from your debt, such as consumer proposals and bankruptcies.

When you seek advice from an LIT, whether in our offices or online, you can be confident that you are dealing with someone who has the knowledge, experience and skills to be granted a license from the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Myths

Many people hear the word ‘bankruptcy’ and immediately have misconceptions about what it is and the type of individual who may file it. The truth is, most of what you have probably heard about bankruptcy is wrong. And bankruptcy in Alberta isn’t as uncommon as you’d think. The following are some common misconceptions that often cause unnecessary worry:

  1. I will lose all of my assets and property in a bankruptcy.
    Usually, all of the assets you own—including your house and car—will be retained by you, as they qualify as exempt assets under federal and/or provincial legislation. If you own non-exempt assets, such as a recreational property, investment property, motorcycle, boat, or recreational vehicle you have the option to structure your bankruptcy in a manner that enables you to repurchase the non-exempt asset at fair market value and retain possession and use of the non-exempt asset in a personal bankruptcy.
  2. My bankruptcy will last seven (7) years.
    The length of a bankruptcy ranges from a minimum of nine (9) months for a first time bankruptcy with no surplus income, to a maximum period of thirty-six (36) months for a second time bankruptcy with surplus income.
  3. Bankruptcy will destroy my credit rating, and prevent me from qualifying to for another loan or mortgage.
    For most individuals, their credit rating has already been compromised due to late payments, missed payments, collection action or legal action prior to declaring bankruptcy. The negative comments and ratings disclosed to the credit reporting agencies by your unsecured creditors will remain on your credit report for seven (7) years following the date of the last comment submitted by the creditor.
  4. Financial institutions will refuse to provide financing where negative comments or ratings appear on my credit report.
    When you declare bankruptcy, you are assigned an R9 credit rating by the credit reporting agencies. The bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for six (6) years from the date of your discharge from bankruptcy. However, immediately following your discharge from bankruptcy you may begin to re-establish your credit rating. There is no need for you to wait six (6) years for the bankruptcy to be removed from your credit report to re-establish credit.
  5. You can never go bankrupt against the government for income tax debt or goods and services (“GST”) debt.
    Debt owed to Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) for income tax or GST is included in a personal bankruptcy or consumer proposal. The CRA is legally obligated to comply with the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. For Canadians with an inability to pay their income tax or GST debt, a personal bankruptcy or consumer proposal is the only option available to eliminate tax debts.
  6. My family, friends, co-workers and employer will know I filed for bankruptcy.
    Publication of a bankruptcy in a local newspaper only occurs in large or complex bankruptcies. For the average person, bankruptcy is straightforward. The creditors are notified of the bankruptcy by mail and it is unnecessary to publish the bankruptcy in the local newspaper.The only time your employer will be contacted is when one of your creditors serves your employer with a garnishee summons to attach to a portion of your income. In these instances, the Trustee will contact your employer to terminate the garnishee summons.
  7. Filing for bankruptcy will affect my spouse or my spouse’s credit rating.
    Legally, you and your spouse are two separate individuals, with your own individual legal rights. A personal bankruptcy applies solely to the person that files for bankruptcy, so unless your spouse is named as a co-borrower, or co-signed or guaranteed one or more of your debts such as a loan, credit card, line of credit or bank overdraft, your spouse will be completely unaffected by your filing bankruptcy.
