20% of any dividend sent to the creditors.
- $85.00 for each credit counselling session. Two credit counselling sessions are required for the consumer proposal.
The fees in a consumer proposal are usually paid from the monthly payments offered by you to your creditors under the terms of your consumer proposal. When the creditors of considering the proposal for acceptance they are voting based on the amount they will be receiving after administration expenses of the consumer proposal. The creditors generally understand that the administration expenses are paid first before any dividend is paid to the creditors.
