Dear Member of Parliament

RE:   OSB Proposal to eliminate $8.00 Insolvency Name Search Fee
         Socially punitive and fiscally irresponsible proposal should be scrapped

In August of 2017 Bill James, the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, announced that the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy (OSB) planned to eliminate the current $8.00 Insolvency Name Search Fee.  As you may be aware, currently anyone wishing to search a specific name to determine if an individual has made a consumer proposal or filed for bankruptcy must pay $8.00 per name searched.

The existing $8.00 Insolvency Name Search Fee provides a minimum level of privacy to those individuals who have tried to deal with their debts and get a new start under the Federal Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.  The OSB Proposal to eliminate the current $8.00 Insolvency Name Search Fee is punitive in nature because it will harm those Canadians who take responsibility for their debts.  Furthermore, the OSB Proposal is not fiscally responsible because it will result in foregone revenues of approximately $3 million per year.  Ideally, the Federal Government’s insolvency database should operate on a full cost-recovery basis.

I would urge you to communicate with the Honourable Navdeep Bains, the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, responsible for the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, and forward these concerns to his office.
