What We Are Noticing in Kelowna:

High cost of living in Kelowna causing financial struggles.

Although Kelowna’s cost of living is still lower in Kelowna than, say, Vancouver, it’s rising rapidly.  This results in increases in expenses such as household rent.  For those just starting out in the real estate market with a low down payment, it can mean a significant monthly payment for their mortgage.  When housing costs exceed 30% of a family or individual’s monthly take-home pay, this often forces people to  use unsecured debt products to cover car repairs and other monthly expenses, as well as expenses relating to unexpected emergencies.  The problem is that as the unsecured debts build, people may struggle with meeting monthly payment obligations which result in even more use of credit.  This can be a vicious cycle, an unending spiral of potentially crippling debt.

If you find yourself struggling with your debt, contact a Licensed Insolvency Trustee at D. Thode & Associates Inc. for a free consultation to find out your options.

At least in the short term, many retail employees will face the precarious reality of lower earnings, lower commissions, and difficulty in finding long-term stable employment, resulting in a struggle to cover living expenses and maintain regular payments to creditors. When you are barely making ends meet, it becomes more and more challenging to see a large portion of your debt payments applied to interest and your balances not being reduced. 

If you face financial difficulties due to loss of income and need a fresh start, find out the best options available to help you get out of debt for good.

Bankruptcy Consultation

Individuals who are unable to meet their debt obligations can file for bankruptcy under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada). This process can be stressful. We have the expertise to guide individuals through the process and make sure that you understand your rights. 

FAQ's

Popular Questions

You will have relief from all of your creditors. When you file for bankruptcy, your trustee will see that you no longer have to worry about or deal with your creditors directly. You may also benefit from the termination of wage garnishment, if applicable. The bankruptcy process is designed to get you back on your feet more quickly, relieving you of financial stress.

Your trustee will handle all aspects of the bankruptcy process on your behalf. This includes drafting legal documentation, dealing with creditors, setting personal budget and payment schedule, and distributing assets.

Once your bankruptcy documents are filed, you will continue to work with your trustee to set a personal budget and meet your debt obligations. Until your debts are met your financial flexibility may be limited. This can be challenging but it is imperative to meet your obligations and discharge your bankruptcy as soon as possible.
