Are you asking whether being diagnosed with ADD will assist you in this matter?
When is the last time you made a payment towards this loan?
Is this a federal loan, a provincial loan or a combination of both?
What province are you in please?
When you say many years, do you know when exactly?
It is too late for the federal loan to be collected as the limitation period has passed.
Unfortunately, the provincial loan is not subject to any limitation period. This means the collection agency can sue you. The judgment will ever expire so they will always be able to garnish your wages or seized assets of your ever have any.
For this reason it would be best if you can settle this with the collection agency.
I am sorry I don't have a more optimistic answer for you.
