Licensed Insolvency Trustees can help with much more than personal bankruptcy.

Sands & Associates are a firm of Licensed Insolvency Trustees (formerly bankruptcy trustees), and since 1990 we have helped thousands of people across the province get out of debt and find a financial fresh start.

Besides personal bankruptcy, the debt management professionals in Sands & Associates’ Port Coquitlam location can give debt relief using a Consumer Proposal, which means getting out of debt without filing for bankruptcy. A Consumer Proposal is the most powerful, yet least well known, method of dealing with unmanageable debt without resorting to bankruptcy. We will help you determine the best way forward to achieve a financial fresh start.
