📝 What Counts as Proof of Funds?

Your funds must be readily available to you when you apply and when your permanent resident visa is issued. 💳 Equity on real property or borrowed money won't cut it. You must demonstrate legal access to the funds, preferably cash in a bank account in your name.


🔍 How to Prepare

Research the cost of living in your chosen Canadian destination. Bring as much money as you can for a smoother transition. 💼 And remember, if you're bringing over CAN$10,000 into Canada, declare it to avoid fines or seizure of funds.
