If the trustee reviews your personal situation and there is going to be $15,000 or more available to your creditors, then the Trustee will generally be required to publish notice of your bankruptcy in the local newspaper. However, the Canadian Federal Government is responsible for keeping track of anyone that declares bankruptcy and this information is a matter of public record and the fact that you have previously declared bankruptcy will remain on your financial record with the Government.
