Upon filing your complaint, please be advised of the following:

When the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada (OSB) needs to contact other parties (e.g., Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT), bankrupt, creditor) to investigate the concerns put forward, the information you have provided will be shared with them. In accordance with the principles of procedural fairness and the provisions of the Privacy Act, the OSB will share the complaint received with the party against whom the complaint has been lodged and, in some cases, with the LIT administering the estate. Your identity will also be disclosed. Once the complaint has been reviewed, the OSB will share its findings with all of the parties involved.

The OSB will respond to a complaint within 30 days of the date it is received. For more complex complaints, the OSB may require more time to address the issues raised. If this is the case with your complaint, you will be notified within the 30-day period.

Would you like the OSB to follow-up with you concerning your complaint?
