Can I go to jail because of unpaid debt?

In Anonymous Q & A, Money Management, Ontario, Sarnia by Questions1 Comment

I am a senior on a fixed income and have not paid my credit cards and bank loan for several years as I was told I could just stop paying them and there was no recourse. I have gotten married since all this happened and I had a message on my answering machine that there has been an arrest warrant for me. Is this true? Can I go to jail? I am 80yrs old and cannot go to jail.

    In Canada we no longer have debtor’s prisons. Should there be an outstanding warrant for your arrest, it is not likely due to your unsecured credit card debt. Is there a possibility that you are wanted on other charges?
