Today the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada released the figures for September 2010 (later than usual since it’s part of the quarterly report). Consumer insolvencies for September were 7,822.

Here’s a table showing the most recent figures compared to the preceding three years.

And a graph showing the same data – essentially the period immediately preceding the recession to present.

The overall pattern is one with bankruptcies off the peak but still somewhat elevated. Here’s the long term graph with the data going back to January 1991.
