Proof of Funds Requirements

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have recently updated the Proof of Funds Requirements for Express Entry candidates. This change took effect on April 25, 2023. The minimum amount of needed funds is updated yearly and is based on 50% of the low-income cut-off totals. 

Ensuring that the settlement fund numbers in the Express Entry profile are current is essential to remain eligible. The new minimum amount of funds required are:

  • for a single person applying for immigration is CAD 13,757
  • while for a family of four, it is CAD 25,564. 

These amounts are subject to change, and it is important to check for updates regularly.

 

Overview of Express Entry Proof of Funds Requirements

Proof of funds is how you show you have enough money to settle in Canada. If you are invited to apply, you must provide written proof that you have this funding. You need proof of funds to be eligible to meet the minimum requirements of the:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program

Your family’s financial requirements depend on how many people are living in it. Include yourself, your spouse or common-law partner, your dependent children, and your spouse or common-law partner’s dependent children while calculating the size of your family.

The amount you must have in order to move to Canada as of April 25, 2023, is listed in this table.
