The federal Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, in Part X, contains provisions for the “orderly payment of debts”. These provisions enable a debtor to consolidate most of their debts and pay them off through one monthly payment to the court.
Before 2002, Part X of the Act was administered by the Debtors Assistance Branch of the BC Ministry of Attorney General. Since the government closed the Debtors Assistance Branch in 2002, however, BC has not provided consolidation services under Part X for debtors, despite the fact that Part X remains in force in the province.
