Purpose of Filing for Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy offers an honest and unfortunate debtor an opportunity for a fresh start.

Impact of Bankruptcy on Your Immediate Future

The most notable positive impact that bankruptcy will have on your immediate future is that all creditors will be prevented from making any contact with you. The automatic stay provisions of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act also prevent the creditors from initiating lawsuits or collection actions.

Filing for bankruptcy will temporarily affect your credit score but once you are granted discharge, your will be able to rebuild credit.

How Will Bankruptcy Impact Your Long-Term Goals?

As mentioned above, an assignment in bankruptcy can lower your credit score temporarily, but the drop won’t be just due to bankruptcy filing. Inability to pay off debts, late payments and charge-offs already affected your credit rating prior to bankruptcy. Going forward, an assignment in bankruptcy and subsequent discharge of your debts will help improve your credit score.


It may be difficult to obtain credit immediately after discharge from bankruptcy. However, your credit score will improve over time. Our Licensed Insolvency Trustees will provide you with information on how to rebuild credit once you are discharged from bankruptcy.
