The pandemic has had a tremendous financial impact on many of our clients, necessitating them to look for ways to avoid personal bankruptcy. Some were already feeling overwhelmed by debt before the pandemic hit, and now, these same people as well as others are very worried and are looking for answers.

In this webinar, I will review the types of financial problems people faced before the pandemic and the additional issues that have now emerged that are pushing many to the brink of bankruptcy due to their reduced or complete loss of cash flow.  

I  will review the information I have been sharing with clients, answering questions about bankruptcy, and dispelling beliefs and information wrongly disseminated about the bankruptcy process as well as possible solutions, such as  filing a consumer proposal.

I look forward to sharing  my 25 years of frontline experience helping those heavily weighed down in debt, and more recently in helping those who are trying to navigate the financial effects of the pandemic and hoping to restore  a positive financial outlook.
