Proof of funds for express entry increases
Federal Skilled Workers and Federal Skilled Trades candidates who do not have a Canadian job offer will need the following amounts to remain eligible for immigration:
|Number of Family Members||Funds Required in Canadian Dollars|
|Each additional family member||$ 3,586|
- The funds must be readily available when applying for a permanent resident visa.
- You must be able to pay the cost of living for your family, even those who are not coming with you.
- If your spouse is accompanying you, the money you have together in a joint account can be used as proof for settlement funds.
- You cannot borrow this money from another person, and you cannot use equity on property as proof of settlement funds.
