Your British Columbia Bankruptcy & Debt Experts

If you have financial issues such as credit card debt, a defaulted mortgage, income tax debt, or wage garnishees, Derek L. Chase & Associates can help. Whether you need credit counselling, debt consolidation, or help with personal bankruptcy, we’ll help you find the right solution for your needs.

Credit Counselling

Credit counselling can take different forms, from budgeting and money management help, to working out an informal arrangement with your creditors that would result in a monthly payment.

Consumer Proposal

Also known as a debt settlement proposal, a Consumer Proposal is an offer to settle with creditors, repaying in full, or in part, over a period of time. We'll help you through the process.


While the phrase ``personal bankruptcy`` may be intimidating, it is often the most sensible option. As a licensed Trustee, we have years of training and experience to help you through the process.

Corporate Proposal

This can make sense if a company needs protection from creditors and future profitability is probable. The result can be breathing space while the creditors are eventually repaid some or all of the debt.
