Bankruptcy Calgary Edmonton Q&A Forum



Hello I filed for bancruptcy 8 years ago or maybe more. I was discharged in January 2010. I was speaking to a credit advisor at RBC today and he said that bankruptcy stays on record for 7 years in alberta, is that true? I thought it was 6 years but I could be wrong.

Hi Ahmed, Typically, a bankruptcy will remain as a public record on your credit report for 7 years from the date that you file the bankruptcy if you were discharged after 9 months. If your discharge was after the 9 months of bankruptcy then the record will remain on your credit report for 6 years after your discharge date of January 2010. Hope that clarifies your concern.
