Is there a proof of claims deadline for Canadian bankruptcy creditors?

Canadian (you are not my) lawyers: is there a deadline for filing a proof of claim in personal bankruptcies?

A client recently filed personal bankruptcy in Ontario. The bankruptcy notice says that for a meeting to be held they must receive a certain percentage of proofs of claim within 30 days of the bankruptcy filing requesting such a meeting. But there does not otherwise appear to be any deadline for filing proofs generally, and neither Google nor the Act appear to suggest one.

We are not a huge creditor and don't have much hope in recovery, so I don't care to request a meeting; I just intend to file the proof of claim and go from there.

I know you are not my lawyer and are not giving me legal advice; any direction you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Bankruptcies are public record, why not just call the trustee and ask?
