What’s the Difference Between Bankruptcy and Insolvency?
These two words, insolvency and bankruptcy, can be quite confusing if you’re not sure what they mean. However, they go together and are related. Below is a clear distinction of bankruptcy vs insolvency:
- Someone is said to be “insolvent” when they owe more than $1,000 and can’t pay their debts according to how they are supposed to be paid.
- When someone is insolvent, they may choose to claim bankruptcy or file a Consumer Proposal.
