Administrator of a Consumer Proposal

This is a lengthy title meaning a professional who is authorized to file and administer a consumer proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.

In Quebec, only a licensed insolvency trustee can be an administrator of a consumer proposal. Thus, you may sometimes see on the forms of a file: Jean Fortin & Associates, administrator of a consumer proposal. This term is specifically provided for in the Act, but it almost always implies, in Canada and at all times in Quebec, a licensed insolvency trustee.
