Will I lose my RESP if I file a Consumer Proposal?
No, you will not lose an RESP in a Consumer Proposal. In a Consumer Proposal, you are making an offer to your creditors to settle your debt to them based on the terms of your offer. The terms of your offer is usually that you are prepared to pay a percentage of your debts over a period of time–usually 60 months with no interest. It is rare that the creditors will ask that you collapse the RESP to pay the money into the proposal. Even if they ask, you have the right to refuse.
