Recent reports suggest that with rising tuition fees, student debt is also growing. This can have a big financial impact on students’ lives after they graduate. Lack of employment, the gap between income and expenditure, and/or irresponsible spending causes many students to default on loan payments. This can affect your credit ratings and financial future.

Professional assistance from our personal debt experts can relieve your financial problems and help you take the right steps towards financial recovery. Get started today.


A question we are often asked is if filing for bankruptcy can help alleviate the financial problems caused by inability to repay student loans. The answer is not simple and depends on your specific case. However, what you must know is that:

  • Student loans can only be released in a personal bankruptcy if it is more than 7 years since you ceased to be a full- or part-time student.
  • If the 7-year period has not passed, you may be eligible for some repayment assistance or interest relief. This website may be of assistance in applying for relief:


If you are finding it difficult to make even the minimum payments on your student loans, chances are you are in over your head. Borrowing more money against your credit cards or taking personal loans to cover the gap is not the solution. It is important to recognize the danger signs and act before the situation worsens. Our full-service insolvency firm is here to help you get back on your feet as soon as possible.

The first step to dealing with your financial problems is to consult a Licensed Insolvency Trustee at the Harris & Partners Inc. office in Barrie. Filing for bankruptcy or getting repayment assistance is a legal process and can be confusing. You will also need a Licensed Insolvency Trustee and Restructuring Professional to act on your behalf.
