If you file bankruptcy in Canada, you are required to report your income to your bankruptcy trustee each month, and if you have surplus income you are required to make extra payments. The amount you are permitted to earn while bankrupt is set by the government of Canada, based on your family size, and each year they adjust the limits for inflation.
