Debt Solutions in Manitoba
A consumer proposal is an offer submitted to your creditors to settle your debt. Debtors must meet specific criteria in order to be eligible for this course of action. If you meet those criteria, there are definite benefits to this approach to debt management. For example, once a consumer proposal has been filed, you will be able to retain all of your assets.
Debt consolidation is the strategy of paying off several smaller debts using a single payment. There are both benefits and pitfalls to this approach to debt management. Contact Caplan Debt Solutions today to learn more about the pros and cons of debt consolidation, and to discuss whether you are eligible.
Caplan Debt Solutions is proud to offer credit counselling services to people in need. During a credit counselling session, you will be able to sit with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT), discuss your financial situation, and ask questions about possible solutions. Our LIT will always treat you with understanding and respect, while providing clear, straightforward guidance during this challenging time.
We offer a no cost, no obligation, personal consultation so we can get to know you.

Just wanted to share part of an email I recently sent to one of your team members:
Lynden, I think in another life you might have been a therapist based on your compassion, thoughtfulness and helpfulness. In a way though, I think it’s even better you’re in the business field, because the field needs people with those traits. The business field- and it’s customers- are so lucky you’re in it! 🙂 Have a lovely day and week ahead!
How To Choose A Licensed Insolvency Trustee
While every Licensed Insolvency Trustee (Trustee) is federally licensed and regulated by the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, Winnipeg trustees are not all the same. How can you tell which is the right insolvency trustee for you? Before choosing a trustee, we recommend that people visit the trustee’s office to perform an INTERVIEW.
In other words, have a conversation with the trustee. Meet the team and make sure you feel comfortable. You will know once you get there if it FEELS RIGHT. TRUST YOUR GUT and you will make the right decision. Your finances may have gotten out of control, but who you choose to help you get them back under control is completely within your power. You do not have to deal with any particular Licensed Insolvency Trustee, but once you have chosen your trustee, it is very difficult to change. You are going into at least a nine-month relationship and you need to be sure it’s the right one for you. Good luck with your decision!
